Scotland Memorial Foundation is committed to improving the health of the communities we serve by advancing educational opportunities in the healthcare field for local students, who will hopefully return home for careers with Scotland Health Care System. To that end, Scotland Memorial Foundation annually awards scholarships to high school seniors who intend to pursue healthcare-related courses of study at a college or university and who have achieved at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA. 

These scholarships include:

  • W.R. Dulin Memorial Scholarship - $2,000
    The prestigious W.R. Dulin Memorial Scholarship, awarded in memory of W.R. "Bob" Dulin, who dedicated considerable time to improving the health of local individuals as demonstrated by his nearly two decades of service to the Scotland Health Care System Board of Trustees.
  • Merit Based Scholarship - $2,000
  • Merit & Need Based Scholarship - $2,000
  • Two Allied Health/Nursing Scholarships - $1,000 each
  • Community Service Scholarship - $2,000
