South Texas Health System is now providing a $49,000 scholarship to student of South Texas College’s Nursing and Allied Health Division. The announcement came Jan. 10 at a check presentation of the funds meant to help reduce financials burden and provide assistance upon continuing education.
“South Texas Health System is always here to support us. They’re providing scholarships to help our students graduate and become registered nurses. They’re hiring our nurses, so it’s a win win for everybody,” says STC President Shirley A. Reed. “The quality of healthcare is increasing each and every day in our region, and the expectations for the best quality healthcare are really very high. We have to work together to meet that public expectation.”
To apply for the scholarship, students must currently have enrollment in STC’s Associate of Applied Science or any healthcare degree. Students must have a GPA of 2.5 in all course work as well as pass all the course work with a C or better. Students must also be taking 12 credits per semester.
