Virginia Welch Scholarship
Each year the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center Auxiliary awards the Virginia Welch Scholarship to men and women planning to pursue a career in a medically related field. The scholarship is named in honor of Virginia Welch, a head nurse who became Good Samaritan's administrator in 1951 and served until 1967. To date, more than $140,000 has been awarded to students pursuing a career in health care.
High school seniors, undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in, or accepted to, a program to pursue a career in a medically related field in a hospital setting are eligible to apply.
Application packets for 2013 will be posted soon. At that time, the application deadline will be announced.
To apply for the Virginia Welch Scholarship, please print and complete the application packet in full. It is the responsibility of the applicant to submit a complete application on time. Late applications will not be considered.

The purpose of the Jeanne Hazleton Scholarship Fund is to honor Jeanne’s lifetime service and contribution to the community as a practicing Doula and Midwife and to encourage women to enter or continue their education in the birthing field. The scholarship program is coordinated by the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation and is designed to help female residents of Benton, Linn and Lincoln counties begin or continue their education for Doula and/or Midwife training, certification or licensing.
