Corvallis Foundation, Auxiliary Offer Scholarships

Students seeking a career in the health care field are invited to apply for scholarships offered through the foundation and auxiliary at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.

The Larry A. Mullins, DHA, Scholarship was established in 2003 by the board of directors of Samaritan Health Services. It was created in honor of Mullins, former president/CEO of Samaritan Health Services, upon the completion of his doctoral degree in health care administration (DHA) from the Medical University of South Carolina.

The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation administers the fund which awards at least one $1,000 scholarship annually. Mullins chairs the selection committee for the scholarship.

Candidates must be currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in a health care-related field. Mullins scholarships are available to individuals without regard to race, religion, national origin, gender, age, color, disability or marital status.

Special consideration will be given to applicants who are currently employed in the health care field, members or veterans of the U.S. military and those who are willing to work in Oregon or Arizona. Completed applications are due, or must be postmarked, by Friday, April 24.

The Jeanne Hazleton Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 by Patrick Hazleton, husband of the late Jeanne Hazleton and funded by numerous contributions made by family and friends. The scholarship serves 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 hospital foundation administers the scholarship, designed to help female residents of Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties begin or continue their education for doula and/or midwife training, certification or licensing.

Applications are due to the foundation, or must be postmarked by, Thursday, April 30.
