Loans and Scholarships

McDonough District Hospital and the Auxiliary to MDH have established funds for students to help financially fulfill their academic goal in a healthcare field. The Auxiliary Scholarship Fund offers assistance to students and current MDH employees enrolled in a curriculum leading to a career in a health-related field or to MDH employees who wish to expand their skills through additional course work, job-related seminars, or professional certification programs.

Scholarships available are the Ruby Teel Health Career Scholarship, the Gabbert Nursing Scholarship, the Gayle and Ron Peterson Nursing Scholarship, the Donna M. Twomey Nursing Scholarship, the Maxine Simeral Scholarship, the Helen Meek Scholarship, the Haldon and Hazel Curless Nursing Scholarship, the Carolyn J. Baumann Nursing Scholarship, the Ruth Dexter Scholarship in Nursing, and the Dr. George Roodhouse Health Career Scholarship. Applications for these scholarships may be made in conjunction with the Auxiliary scholarships.

Interested persons may also apply for additional funding through the MDH and Auxiliary loan program. Upon completion of the education, loan recipients may repay their loan in full or if employed by MDH through loan forgiveness applied toward worked hours in their new position.
