Medical Workers Scholarship Fund
How to Apply for an Award
A child applicant may, in their own behalf, submit the Letter of Recommendation provided they include the names, phone numbers and titles of an adults of authority who agrees sponsor the applicant.
Sponsors information can be entered at the Letter of Recommendation. For applicants under age 18, the individual most responsible for the child (Surviving parent, Guardian etc.), may use the same Letter of Recommendation, entering the required information.
Sponsors information can be entered at the Letter or Recommendation. Once an applicant is deemed by MWSF to have met the eligibility requirements, the selection process will commence including requests for supporting documentation if deemed necessary.
All qualified applicants will be invited to become a VIP in the Medical Workers Scholarship Fund. A VIP has no duties and is unpaid. However all will be able to avail themselves of possible benefits which may be offered from time to time when and if deemed feasible and which may include, special events, career planning, financial planning, group counseling, support groups and more. Minimum fees may be charged as a way of assuring those who sign-up actually attend. It is easy to skip commitments when they are free.
Development of this 'beyond the scholarship' benefit is expected to evolve over time as MWSF matures into a viable entity. In a sense, MWSF wants every applicant to be a winner, be it cash, tuition, books or career and personal financial guidance or outside activities participation.. Non-Award winners will remain 'in the loop' in the event MWSF receives unexpected gifts. It follows VIPs will have an 'inside track" for the next round of scheduled awards and ad hoc support.
Not everyone has a trade or professional career in mind. An entrepreneurial few may choose to start and operate their own business. For that we are uniquely qualified having many years experience working from home in home-based businesses. A few of the VIP benefits we envision are listed below as examples as we evaluate possibilities. The purpose of considering an on-going benefits program is our way of trying to add value beyond an Award. Some benefits may have minimal fees to assure valuable volunteer time is not "wasted.' If someone pays for a service or benefit, the assumption is they see value. All services would be at the option of the VIP, if offered.
We believe VIPs will appreciate the opportunity to contribute to their own success. Dependent upon MWSF financial health, we will likely engage professional consultants and pay their fees in lieu of volunteers. If our funds are to be well spent we'd like to do our part to help all applicants as they strive for success.
