Lehigh Regional Medical Center Scholarship Information

As part of its commitment to meeting the healthcare needs of the community it serves, Lehigh Regional Medical Center is awarding a scholarship, up to $12,000 per year, to a nursing student who demonstrates the same commitment to give back to the community. The Lehigh Regional Medical Scholarship will help pay for tuition, required books, lab fees, state board exam, temporary permit and nursing license, in exchange for the scholarship recipients’ commitment to working for three years as a full-time nurse with Lehigh Regional Medical Center after graduation and passing of the state board exam.

To be considered for the Lehigh Regional Medical Center Scholarship, nursing students should complete an application by the June 1, 2021, deadline. All materials for the scholarship program, as listed in the application and below, must be received by the application deadline for the application to be considered by the selection committee.

Scholarship Application Form

  • A completed application,
  • Proof of acceptance to an accredited nursing school,
  • Current transcript of completed and/or current coursework,
  • Two letters of recommendation from non-relatives, and
  • A one-page essay explaining your goals in nursing and how the scholarship will help you to achieve your goals.

Scholarship recipients are required to maintain a C average or above in each course. There is no obligation to repay the scholarship if the recipient begins employment within sixty days of graduation and passing the nursing board exam, and the recipient completes the three-year full-time commitment working as a nurse for Lehigh Regional Medical Center. If for any reason, a scholarship recipient discontinues their nursing program or does not complete the three-year commitment with Lehigh Regional Medical Center, the scholarship recipient must repay all scholarship amounts with interest. Scholarship recipients are expected to sign a scholarship agreement, which should be reviewed by the applicant as part of the application process.

There are additional requirements for the scholarship program listed in the application. Notably, students may not have accepted a scholarship or loan with any other private or governmental program that has a conflicting service requirement following graduation.
