The San Leandro Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary is now accepting applications for its annual health care scholarship program.
Every year, the Auxiliary awards scholarships to college students and graduating high school seniors pursuing medical careers.
To be eligible, these students must live in San Leandro and enroll in healthcare-related studies. Scholarships will be awarded in June for studies in the fall.
The Auxiliary awarded $21,000 in scholarships last year and since its inception in 1972, has donated over $414,000 to students.
Past scholarship recipients have gone on to become physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
Applications are available at the information desk or the gift shop at Eden Medical Center’s San Leandro Hospital Campus lobby, 13855 East 14th St. Students can also request an application from a career counselor at San Leandro or Arroyo high schools and the Chinese Christian School.
The deadline to apply is April 5.
