Laboratory Control Ltd Health Career Scholarships Awarded

OTTUMWA-The Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the Laboratory Control Ltd. Health Career Scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year.  Since 2004, the Laboratory Control Limited Endowment has provided over $347,000 in scholarships to students from 31 different communities in southeast Iowa.

“This program is about investing and supporting our local talent, said Amy Nossaman, Grants Program Manager for the Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation. The LCL Health Career Scholarship assists these students along in their educational journey towards a career in health care with the hope that they will return here once they graduate.”  This year, $24,000 was awarded to 15 students with scholarship amounts ranging from $1,000 to $2,000.  The 2017 scholarship recipients represent eight different communities in Southeast Iowa. The recipients were selected on the basis of outstanding academic record and area of study with preference given to applicants who expressed a desire to seek employment in southeast Iowa upon completion of studies and those pursuing education in a health career identified as a workforce shortage area. The scholarship recipients’ courses of study include pharmacy, physical therapy, nursing, radiology, dentistry, and nurse practitioner.
