Marshall Awards Healthcare Scholarships To Local Students

Marshall Awards Healthcare Scholarships To Local Students

Marshall, El Dorado County’s largest healthcare provider, has awarded six $1,000 scholarships to deserving seniors from El Dorado, Oak Ridge, Ponderosa, and Union Mine high schools. This year’s recipients represent the first graduating class to have spent all four years of high school within the timeframe of COVID-19. Their academic success, dedicated community service, and healthcare ambitions, despite the pandemic’s many challenges, make them standout that much more.

The one-time Marshall Healthcare Careers Scholarship assists recipients with tuition, fees, books, or other school-related expenses. Applicants are required to have a medical career aspiration and are evaluated based on academic achievement and community service/work history. This year’s recipients were selected from 34 scholarship applicants.

Congratulations to each of this year’s recipients. Marshall looks forward to your promising futures and to watching as you elevate the field of healthcare.
