The Medical Workers Scholarship Fund provides need-based scholarships to children of deceased front-line medical staff to attend college or career training.
Our objective is simple: Honoring Those Who Died Fighting Covid-19 by Educating Their Children.
Initially, this scholarship program will be administered by the MWSF Board of Directors.
Before applying, verify eligibility.
Then gather up your paperwork.
Once eligibility criteria is established, initiate contact to get answers to your questions by sending us a message.
When the air is cleared an online interview can be set up. This interview will determine whether or not an online application should be submitted.
Start an Application
This scholarship is need-based. If your 2020 income is over $36,000, you’ll need to provide documentation and a thorough explanation demonstrating your family’s financial need and extreme extenuating financial circumstances.
Examples of financial need include multiple sibling applicants in college, significant medical expenses that are abnormal to a normal tax year and death of an income-providing parent in 2020.
Examples of extenuating circumstances that cannot be considered include: “I am paying for college on my own” or “I am attending an expensive college.”
Finish an Application
After review by staff and directors, applicants will be invited to Register for a MWSF VIP Scholars account. Its purpose is to document a history and timeline of the applicants relationship with MWSF.
Retention of electronic records not only saves time and expense but opens on-going communication via our Members Chat facility below.
The award process is pending legal and accounting approvals.
Once a proper operating entity is defined, we will proceed with writing grant applications, seeking private donations, uncovering award candidates from established contacts in the medical community and setting up a bank trust account to accept and account for donations. Payment for normal operating costs is expected to require Board approval.
When scholarship funding is in place we will complete the award process.
The final scholarship award decision in the selection process is made by the MWSF Board of Directors.
The Board will administer the scholarship program during its formative stages.
At an appropriate time, administration may be turned over to an outside administrator or retained depending upon developing Internal capabilities.
