Health Careers Scholarships

Daviess Community Hospital Foundation provides scholarship awards to aspiring health care professionals in an effort to support and encourage those individuals to return to our community to fulfill our communities’ need for dedicated, trained health care providers. Daviess Community Hospital Foundation makes scholarship awards through two scholarship programs.

Only one application is required to be eligible for both scholarship programs if the individual is pursuing a nursing degree.

  • The Health Careers Scholarship Program: Up to $1,500 may be awarded for each scholarship recipient selected.
  • The DCH Auxiliary Scholarship: Up to $1,000 may be awarded annually to one scholarship recipient.
  • The Helen Arthur Memorial Scholarship Award: A $750 scholarship award for a student pursuing a nursing degree.
  • Nursing Scholarship: $5000 granted to one recipient to assist with successful completion of his/her nursing curriculum.

The Helen Arthur Memorial Scholarship Award honors Helen Arthur, a local resident who was unable to fulfill her desire to become a nurse after contracting tuberculosis. The scholarship recognizes the women of Omega Alpha Chi, a local homemakers group, who in 1954 established and named a Helen Arthur Memorial Educational Loan Fund for students pursuing medical careers. In 2006, the group gifted the balance of the fund to the DCH Foundation to support the scholarship program.
