Lehigh Hospital Auxiliary scholarship applications available

April 3, 2019
By MEGHAN BRADBURY ( , Lehigh Acres Citizen

The Lehigh Hospital Auxiliary is now accepting applications for the 2019 scholarship awards, which are open to Lehigh Acres residents pursuing schooling in any type of medical education programs.

Anita Schwinsburg, with the Lehigh Hospital Auxiliary, said they have been providing scholarships to residents at least 18 years and older for the past 10 years. The scholarship, which is based on need, is typically given to five individuals.

"It's not just because they have the highest grade point average," she said of why the scholarships are awarded. "What they do in the community, that plays a part."

References are also part of the scholarship application. Those applying have to be enrolled, or accepted, into a credited school to receive the scholarship.

"People do not realize how many scholarships are available in the area. They just have to go out and shake the bushes," Schwinsburg said.

Those interested in filling out a scholarship application can do so by visiting the front desk in the lobby of the Lehigh Regional Medical Center, at 1500 Lee Blvd. The deadline to turn in the scholarship is Monday, May 27.
