Grand Rapids Community Foundation was founded so as to provide financial help through various scholarships annually primarily to Kent County students.
One of its scholarships is the Violet Wondergem Health Science Scholarship which is aimed at people who could benefit from education, as they are majoring in a health service-related field, but have financial difficulties in reaching this goal.
The foundation emphasizes the importance of support when higher education expenses are in question.
You are supposed to send one general application, and once you do that, you get the possibility of being awarded one of more than 500 scholarships provided by Grand Rapids Community Foundation.
The application deadline for all scholarships belonging to this foundation is March 1st.
You need to gather your documentation and then review the list of scholarships available through Grand Rapids Community Foundation to see which one will be the most suitable for you.
It is important to regularly check your email via which you will be notified about important things related to the scholarship.
To be eligible for the Violet Wondergem Health Science Scholarship, future applicants have to meet eligibility criteria.
Firstly, the award is available only to those students who are residents of Kent or Ottawa counties.
