T.J Regional Health Launches Educational Scholarship Program

Hospital news | Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Glasgow, KY – T.J. Regional Health is excited to launch a new scholarship opportunity for area high school seniors who are planning to pursue degrees and careers in healthcare or healthcare related fields. Through the new T.J. Educational Scholarship Program, three $2,000 scholarships will be awarded this March. The application process is fully online at tjregionalhealth.org/scholarship, and the deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2022.

Students who reside and attend any high school or homeschool in the healthcare organization’s service area are encouraged to apply, including in Adair, Allen, Barren, Green, Hart, Metcalfe, Monroe and Russell Counties.

“If you live in any of the communities where we have a physical location and you have a desire to obtain a degree in healthcare or a healthcare related field, then you are in a unique and special position to qualify for one of our scholarships,” according to Neil Thornbury, CEO of T.J. Regional Health.

The scholarship program is part of the new 12 Months of T.J. initiative. Over the past two years, the community’s support of the T.J. family has been nothing short of amazing. While T.J. Regional Health is always community focused, the goal was to find ways to go above and beyond in giving back to those who have supported T.J. Regional Health. Every month in 2022, T.J. Regional Health will support local families, charities, partner organizations, students, schools, healthcare workers and more through different projects and programs.

Thornbury said, “If the last two years have shown us anything, it is that healthcare careers are now and will continue to be in extremely high demand. The scholarship program will not only be an important part of 12 Months of T.J., but it will also provide support to area students and hopefully help to build our workforce for the future.”
