The Rachel E Petersen Memorial Scholarship has been established to help off set some of the expense of becoming a nurse/health care worker. The 5k Scrub Run helps the foundation raise money to be given out in the form of scholarships. We would not be able to sustain the scholarships we offer without generous sponsorships, private donations, and Fun Run participation. We thank all who have or will be part of our mission!
There is a scholarship awarded to a student from DeKalb High School who is pursuing a future in healthcare. This application is due before spring break and submitted directly through DHS. See your guidance counselor for specific dates and application process.
We are also pleased to be offering scholarships to both nursing/healthcare students at Valparaiso University and Northern Illinois University. To be considered for a scholarship, please complete the following application by July 31, 2023. The Scholarship Committee will award one (1) scholarship from each university and the recipient will be notified mid-August, and sent directly to the university for Fall Semester 2023.
