 State Healthcare Scholarship

The Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) is proud to continue the Health Care Careers Scholarship program for the eleventh year. The Iowa Hospital Education and Research Foundation (IHERF), an IHA subsidiary, administers the scholarship program.

 IHA announced the amount of the scholarship award has been increased to $3,500, the first increase in the 10 year history of the program due to college tuition inflation.

The ultimate goal of this program is to fill Iowa healthcare positions that currently have a notable number of openings by offering significant financial support to students seeking healthcare education or training. In exchange for that financial support, each award recipient must commit to working one year in an Iowa hospital for each year of scholarship award.

All applications will be submitted online at the IHERF scholarship website that will help students confirm their eligibility before beginning the application process. This will allow for electronic submission of their application, college program verification, and references.

Placement opportunities will be identified for each IHA geographic district (a map is included with the application). Scholarship applications will be scored and awards made based on each applicant’s qualifications. All portions of the application form must be submitted by March 30, 2016.

Please contact Clara Stults, Director Operations and Information Services, or 515-288-1955 at IHERF if you need additional information.
