NMC Accepting Applications for Health Professions Scholarship

Northwestern Medical Center is now accepting applications for four Health Professions Scholarships to be awarded this spring.

NMC welcomes applications from graduating seniors from Franklin County High Schools who are entering collegiate study in a health care field. This scholarship is not based on financial need but rather awarded based on a student’s academic performance and community service.

The Martin H. Wennar, MD, Health Education Scholarship Fund began as the NMC Health Professions Scholarship, established in 1987. In 2003, the fund was renamed and dedicated to Dr. Martin Wennar, a retired general surgeon who passed away in August 2009 following a battle with pancreatic cancer. Dr. Wennar and former NMC Chief Financial Officer Peter Georgeopoulos initiated the fund and its rededication honored Wennar’s long-standing commitment to encouraging health professions.

Scholarship amounts are typically $3,000 and applications are available through local high school guidance offices, or on the NMC website. Visit www.northwesternmedicalcenter.org/scholarships. The deadline for the application is April1, 2021.

Contact Courtney Bates in NMC’s Community Relations office, at 524-1280 with any questions about applying for these scholarships.
