Current Scholarship Funds


MHF Community Scholarships


The Community Scholarship Program is designed to encourage local young people to explore healthcare careers and to reinvest in the long-term health of the community. Award funding is made possible through the generosity of community members through private contributions and through the foundation's fundraising efforts.

This dynamic program, which reaches high school seniors across the school districts of Fall River and Big Valley, includes opportunities to pair our scholarships with mentoring, volunteerism and internships, exploring career opportunities closer to home. These awardees will qualify for renewal scholarships as they continue to reach their education goal. There are currently two active Scholarship Funds accepting contributions and awarding scholarships:
