Since 2001, the Gallagher Koster Health Careers Scholarship Program has provided outstanding students with the financial assistance they need to pursue their health-related career. Open to higher education students entering their junior and senior year of Undergraduate study, the scholarship program continues to grow in both the number of scholarships offered each year and the amount of each scholarship. Each recipient is selected by the Scholarship Program Board of Directors, and each recipient both demonstrates the program standards, which include: a strong motivation to pursue a healthcare career, academic excellence, a dedication to community service, and a need for financial support of their education.
