Bayhealth continues to invest in its most valuable resource.
Starting in the 2012-2013 school year, Bayhealth will offer a $3,000 annual scholarship to Bayhealth employees in addition to the $5,000 tuition reimbursement that is already available to employees.
“Investing in our people will reap dividends with a better educated and more highly trained workforce, as well as better outcomes for our patients,” said Bayhealth Director of Patient Advocacy, Service Excellence, and Professional Recruitment Marianne Foard, RN, MSN. “We’re retaining our best and brightest and helping them achieve their highest potential.”
To be eligible for the new Bayhealth scholarship, Bayhealth employees must show documented acceptance into a bachelor’s or higher degree program for healthcare majors, and meet other criteria. Scholarship recipients must agree to a three year full-time commitment to Bayhealth upon graduation.
The scholarship is also available to non-Bayhealth employees who are a junior or senior enrolled in a healthcare major with a grade point average of 3.0 to 4.0. External candidates receiving the Bayhealth scholarship must also agree to a three year full-time work commitment at Bayhealth upon graduation.
Applications for this highly competitive scholarship must be received by August 1st, with scholarship awards announced by September. For details about the scholarship and to download an application, please visit www.bayhealth.org/scholarships. For questions, please call (302) 744-7143.
