Warrensburg, MO (Feb. 1, 2023)—The Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) Auxiliary is sponsoring scholarships for students pursuing a career in healthcare. Those interested must turn in a completed application by deadline April 1, 2023 to be considered.

Scholarships are available to students in health related fields including but not limited to: nursing, medical school, physical therapy, wellness, laboratory, radiology, occupational therapy, cardio-pulmonary services, pharmacy, and nutrition. Successful applicants are selected by the Auxiliary Scholarship Committee based on financial need, scholastic ability, work plans and demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in healthcare.

Last year, the scholarship committee awarded five $1,000 scholarships and one $500 scholarship. The amounts can vary, dependent on need and ability. Completed applications must be returned to the attention of Teresa Collins in the Communications & Development Department at WMMC no later than April 1, 2023. PLEASE NOTE: Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Applications for this scholarship have been distributed to all Johnson County high schools as well as Warrensburg Area Career Center, University of Central Missouri and State Fair Community College. The application is also available on our website. For more information, please contact Teresa Collins, Volunteer Services Coordinator and Auxiliary Liaison, at Western Missouri Medical Center at (660) 262-7466 or by email at tacollins@wmmc.com.

As educational expenses are rapidly rising and the demand for healthcare workers continues to increase, there is an ongoing need for additional funds. Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of someone will enhance the Auxiliary’s opportunity to provide additional scholarships. Donations may be made to the WMMC Auxiliary for the Scholarship Fund and mailed to:

WMMC Auxiliary, Attn: Teresa Collins
