The following outlines important details for the Wellstar Foundation Education Scholarship opportunities, application process and award criteria. Please review this information in its entirety prior to submitting an application.

  • Wellstar Foundation Education Scholarships offer financial assistance to benefit-eligible full-time or permanent part-time Wellstar Team Members, as well as their dependents or spouses who are pursuing a degree in a healthcare-related field. This includes degrees for both clinical and non-clinical healthcare fields.
  • Scholarship award opportunities include the Wellstar Foundation Scholarship as well as 13 additional donor-funded scholarships.
    – There is one general scholarship application for ALL scholarship opportunities.
    – Should your application qualify for a donor-funded scholarship, you will automatically be considered for the opportunity. Note, you may be notified to submit additional information if your application is being considered for a donor-funded opportunity that requires additional responses or documentation.
    – It is possible to be selected to receive both the Wellstar Foundation Scholarship AND/OR a donor-funded scholarship. Selections and awards are determined through the review and evaluation process.
    – All scholarship opportunities, including eligibility, applicable evaluation criteria and donor-history, can be reviewed on this site.
  • Completed applications with all required supporting documentation that are received by the application deadline of 11:59 p.m. ET on February 28, 2023, will be reviewed and evaluated by a review committee based on criteria outlined in the application.
  • Applicants are responsible for ensuring their application was successfully submitted as noted in the Academic Works platform. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
  • The selection process is competitive, and applicants should demonstrate their potential for a successful career within their chosen field. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required.
  • The number of awards given and the dollar amounts awarded each year vary as they are subject to the availability of Foundation funding.
  • Financial assistance awarded through these scholarships should be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and/or additional costs related to enrollment in a healthcare-related degree program.
  • Scholarship award decisions will be sent to all applicants in May 2023.
