Kathleen Sheehan Memorial Scholarship Award
Applications for the 2024 Kathleen Sheehan Memorial Award will be accepted in spring 2024 – look for updates on this page for specific dates. This $2,000 scholarship award is given each year to a college student currently enrolled in an accredited health-related field of study program with a focus on nursing, physical therapy, or occupational therapy. The student must reside in Carroll County, NH or Western Maine. The scholarship will be awarded as either a single $2000 scholarship or two $1,000 scholarships.
After Kathleen passed away from cancer, VNHCH staff wanted to honor her memory and recognize all she did for our agency and the community. They came up with the idea of the scholarship. This idea was approved by the VNHCH board and has been in place since then.
Candidates must submit an application form online by May 30, 2023. Applications should include an essay, and college transcript. Awards are based on scholastic ability, relevant work experience, demonstrated financial need and an essay on the student’s goals.
