The Christopher Sorrells and Aurora BayCare Medical Center EMS Scholarship benefits students enrolled in the emergency medical services program at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.
The Griffin Scholarship is available to students who have good grades, participate in extra-curricular activities and demonstrate a work history, but aren’t necessarily at the top of their class. It’s for students not receiving other scholarship offers and for those whose parents can’t fully fund their plans for college. The scholarship provides funding toward college or technical school tuition. Students studying at online colleges are ineligible.
The Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic Scholarship is awarded to graduating high school seniors who are active members of the Purple Aces Basketball club and exemplify its mission of developing young women with confidence and leadership skills – empowering them through basketball.
New this year and moving forward, scholarships for the BayCare Clinic Foundation Healthcare Scholarship program are now handled and distributed directly by the following higher education institutions: Bellin College of Nursing, Fox Valley Technical College, Lakeshore Technical College, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
