Since 1978, the Plumas District Hospital Volunteers have been offering scholarships to local students pursuing a career in the medical field.
PDHV raises the money for the scholarships by various fundraisers including craft fairs, silent auctions and donations. This is the volunteers’ 41st year and they have awarded over $62,500 in scholarships to participants.
Applicants must be a graduate of a high school within the boundaries of the Plumas Hospital District, which now includes Indian Valley. The district includes Quincy, East Quincy, Meadow Valley, Twain, Greenville, Crescent Mills, Taylorsville, Cromberg and Sloat.
Student applicants must have completed a minimum of one year of academic studies in a health-related program or have had at least one year of employment in a health-related field, or are seeking to further their training to advance in a health-related field.
Two $1,500 scholarships will be awarded. Scholarships must be used within one year. All applications must be complete to be considered.
Applications are available online Friday, Feb. 21, at www.pdh.org/about-us/volunteers.
Deadline to submit an application is Friday, April 17.
