Skaggs Foundation awards $30,500 in scholarships to local students

Skaggs Foundation made a $30,500 investment in the future of the health care industry this spring by awarding 30 scholarships to Taney, Stone and Boone county students pursuing degrees in health care.
The scholarships are for the summer and fall 2015 semesters. Among the 30 scholarship recipients, 20 recipients are employees of Cox Medical Center Branson.

“We believe that the best way to ensure the health care industry has a bright future and able to meet the long-term needs of our community is to support education today,” said Tim Nichols, Skaggs Foundation president.

Since its inception in 2002, Skaggs Foundation has awarded a total of $196,950 to 87 students pursuing degrees in health care.

Students who plan to apply for financial assistance from Skaggs Foundation for the spring 2016 semester have until Nov. 1, 2015, to apply.
