About the Program

For more than 100 years, Kendrick memorial Hospital provided specialized, top-quality healthcare in a homelike environment.

“I understand that the total amount of my scholarship will be based on my chosen school’s/program’s tuition for the school year and the decision of the Kendrick Foundation Board of Directors regarding what percentage of tuition to fund. I further understand that my scholarship will not exceed $10,000 per year for a maximum of 6 years, and may be less than that amount or for a shorter term.”

“I will keep the Kendrick Foundation, Inc., apprised annually of my academic status during my course of study.”

“I understand that the Kendrick Scholarship will be paid directly from the Kendrick Foundation, Inc., to the educational institution I attend.”
