Scholarship available for area HS seniors

GLENS FALLS — The Hudson Mohawk Area Health Education Center, known as HM-AHEC, will be awarding up to 10 scholarships for $500 each to high school seniors entering an approved healthcare related program at an area community college and/or a certification program. The application deadline is April 2.

Applicants must be a graduating senior from a high school within the HM-AHEC 10-county service region, which comprises Albany, Essex, Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren and Washington counties.

Recipients are expected to participate in at least one informative two-hour health careers exploration program and be able to help present it at an area high school after successfully completing their certificate program or freshman year of college. Students may be eligible to reapply in a subsequent year, which is to be based on performance and funding.
