Scholarships

These scholarships and loan repayments are awarded by Legacy's Foundations and Volunteer Auxiliaries. We're pleased to offer this support, but the specific eligibility guidelines must be followed.

Please read the guidelines for each scholarship carefully. We're sorry, but Legacy scholarships are not available for students who don't meet the requirements for school, geographic residence or other criteria.

Most scholarships are awarded to students living in Legacy's service area who are entering college and plan a career in health care, and some include invaluable on-the-job experience during the summer months.
