Last night we celebrated with the inaugural recipients of the Spectrum Health Care Professionals Education Scholarship. We also celebrated the partnership between Spectrum Health and GRCC that made these scholarships possible. Spectrum Health created this scholarship in 2016 to encourage and assist students interested in health sciences or health careers. The 96 students who received the scholarship are sophomores in our Associate Degree Nursing, Practical Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant and Radiologic Technology programs. The need-based scholarships range from $3,000 to $4,000 with almost $350,000 awarded for 2017-18. We are so thankful to Spectrum Health for providing this opportunity for our students.
