We feel it’s important to support and encourage the students that will one day be our colleagues.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2016
Houston-based emergency room, SignatureCare Emergency Center, awarded their Student Scholarship to Houston Community College Coleman radiography student, Andrea Schwartz. She was chosen from a talented pool of medical students from around the country.
The scholarship was established in 2015 and awards $1,000 to a dedicated student in the medical profession. The application for the scholarship is open year-round and is awarded during both the fall and spring school semesters. Students are required to submit an essay and video answering who or what inspired them to enter the medical field.
“The entire staff at SignatureCare Emergency Center were once students in medicine. Whether we ended up in surgery, nursing, billing, or another area of the field,” said SignatureCare Emergency Center Chief Medical Officer, Aaron Braun. “We feel it’s important to support and encourage the students that will one day be our colleagues.”
Applicants are required to be attending an accredited university and maintain a 3.0 GPA.
“The scholarship will continue so that SignatureCare can get involved with the community and make a difference for these students,” said Braun. “School can be expensive and we hope to alleviate that burden for these hard-working students.”
