SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sanford Health is accepting applications for four $5,000 scholarships awarded annually to veterans, Guard/Reserve members or active duty military service members who have demonstrated leadership and commitment in their community.
The Sanford Health Military and Veteran Scholarship honors those who have furthered their own progress and enriched the lives of others, especially in service, academics and community involvement.
Interested students should download and complete the application, which is due Aug. 31.
Applicants must be a veteran, Guard/Reserve or active-duty military service member and a full-time student pursing a bachelor’s, graduate or professional degree from an accredited U.S.-based institution of higher education. They must also have at least one full year of education remaining.
The scholarship is administered by the Sanford Health Department of Veterans and Military Services and was created as part of the health system’s efforts to serve veterans and military personnel through patient care, employment opportunities and community outreach.
Sanford Health launched the scholarship program last year, handing out awards to students at Augustana University, Dakota Wesleyan University, North Dakota State University and the University of Mary.
