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 

Scotland Health Care System Auxiliary offers two scholarships in memory of two ladies that devoted their time to serving as volunteers for Scotland Health Care System.  Applicants must have completed 100 volunteer hours with SHCS to qualify for one of the below scholarships. 

  • The Joyce Smith Scholarship - $1,500
  • Ruth Bisbee Scholarship - $1,500  

Non-residents of Scotland County, who are dependent children of a Scotland Health Care System associate, are eligible for two of these scholarships. Applications for each of these scholarships are due March 1st  of each year.
