MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College health care students at the North Mohave campus have a new scholarship opportunity.
The donations will come from WellCare Community Foundation which gave $20,000 and Care 1st donated $10,000. The new endowment is called Care1st CARES.
“The scholarship came about when Care First and community leaders connected to solve local problems. The new clinic is the result of their efforts and will bring much needed services to the area.” said John Cawley, NMC Dean. “The scholarship donation came from the collaboration. I’d say it’s an excellent example of how bringing people together can benefit everyone. As a result, we have a new clinic, scholarship and MEA program on NMC’s campus.”
Students interested must have financial need, attend North Mohave campus, a North Mohave resident, enrolled in a health care program and maintain a 3.0 GPA. Two $3,000 scholarships will be awarded to students each year. The scholarship opens online in the fall.
Health care programs at the North Mohave campus are Medical Assisting, Nursing Assisting and Registered Nursing.
The MCC Foundation has the scholarship funds invested with Edward Jones and will in charge of monitoring the account. The foundation has a lot of scholarships available to students throughout the year.
The sole purpose of Mohave Community College Foundation is to promote the growth, development and strength of Mohave Community College and its students, faculty, staff and programs.
