The San Leandro Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary is now accepting applications for its annual health care scholarship program. Each year the Auxiliary awards scholarships to college students and graduating high school seniors pursuing medical careers. To be eligible, these students must live in San Leandro or San Lorenzo and enroll in healthcare-related studies. Scholarships will be awarded in June for studies in the fall.
The Auxiliary awarded $6,000 in scholarships last year and since its inception in 1972, has awarded over $480,150 to students. Past scholarship recipients have gone on to become physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
Applications are available at the information desk or in the gift shop, located in the lobby, at San Leandro Hospital, 13855 East 14th Street. Students can also request an application from a career counselor at San Leandro or Arroyo high schools. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2016. For more information about the San Leandro Hospital Auxiliary scholarship program, or if you are retired and interested in volunteering at the hospital, call 510-667-4501 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
