Mon Health awards $45,000 in scholarships

MORGANTOWN — The Mon Health Medical Center Foundation recently awarded $45,000 in scholarships to 45 area students pursuing degrees in healthcare fields for the 2021-22 school term.

The scholarships are valued at $1,000 per year for up to four years. Selection was based on financial need and academic performance. Each applicant also submitted a letter describing why they selected a specific health career. A sub-committee of the Foundation’s Board of Directors selected the recipients.
