North Hawaii Community Hospital offers grants
North Hawaii Community Hospital invites residents to apply for three scholarships: the Peggy Dineen-Orsini Scholarship, the NHCH Medical Staff Scholarship and the Hawaii Emergency Physicians Associated, Inc. (HEPA) Scholarship.
The Peggy Dineen-Orsini Scholarship offers one $2,000 award to a resident of Hawaii County who is enrolled in or accepted for enrollment in a National League of Nursing (NLN) accredited program in Hawaii or on the mainland. Private donors along with the Medical Staff at NHCH fund this scholarship in memory of Peggy Dineen-Orsini, who was a Registered Nurse at North Hawaii Community Hospital for eight years (1996 to 2004). Peggy had a caring and appreciative essence for all life offered. Her compassion for her patients, colleagues and friends made her a joy to know and be around. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage residents to become productive members of our community through higher education.
The second scholarship is funded solely by the NHCH Medical Staff and offers two $1,000 scholarships to individuals who are enrolled in or accepted for enrollment in a National League of Nursing accredited program in Hawai‘i or on the mainland.
The third and final scholarship is funded by Hawaii Emergency Physicians Associated, Inc. (HEPA), the independent, physician-owned group of board-certified physicians who provide staffing in NHCH’s Emergency Department. HEPA is offering two $1,000 college scholarships to graduating North Hawaii high school students. For this scholarship, students are asked to write a personal letter describing their future plans and goals and to explain why their financial need is compelling.
All applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee of each sponsoring organization based on the criteria and requirements outlined in the scholarship application, which can be found online at www.NHCH.com. An important consideration in the selection process is financial need. Completed applications and all required documents must be received on or postmarked by the final filing date of Friday, May 9. Please mail completed applications and required documents to North Hawaii Community Hospital, Attention: Human Resources, 67-1125 Mamalahoa Hwy, Kamuela, HI 96743.
