Allied Health Careers Scholarships

The Power of Education 

Allied Health Careers Scholarship Program

Spectrum Health Lakeland Foundation has awarded scholarships and grants to over 1,000 associates at a value of more than $1 million. Local high school students and volunteers who have chosen healthcare as their area of study have also benefited from the funds.

Education enriches individual lives and can renew an entire community. Spectrum Health Lakeland Foundation supports the quality of patient care through informational, educational and skills training improvement for Lakeland associates. By raising the skill level of our healthcare professionals we also raise the level of care given to our families, our community, and ourselves. Find detailed information about our scholarships here.
