IOWA CITY — The Mercy Hospital Foundation has again awarded 10 Health Careers Scholarships of $1,000 each, renewable for up to four years. The recipients are students graduating from high schools in Mercy’s 10-county service area who plan to pursue degrees leading to a health care career. The recipients were honored at a reception on April 23 when each individual was able to share their personal motivation for pursuing a career in health care.

The Health Careers Scholarship program is made possible by generous donations from Mercy Iowa City employees and the Mercy Hospital Guild with supplemental funds from the Mercy Hospital Foundation. A total of 32 new and renewed scholarships were awarded in 2013.
