MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital Scholarship

Nurses walking in hospital

MedStar St. Mary's Hospital recognizes the critical need for specially trained associates. The hospital has designed a scholarship program for individuals who seek an educational degree, license or certification that is essential to the care of our patients. MedStar St. Mary's Hospital provides scholarships in return for service for critical positions, such as registered nurses, imaging technologists, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, medical records coders, lab technologists and pharmacists, among other positions.

Through a grant with the Health Services Cost Review Commission, the hospital also funds scholarships for registered nurses who wish to complete their bachelor's degrees in nursing. Since 2001, MedStar St. Mary's Hospital has been awarding scholarships to Southern Maryland candidates interested in pursuing a healthcare career. The hospital accepts applications from individuals interested not only in nursing, but also in the growing field of allied health. These allied health professionals are involved in many aspects of health care, including, but not limited to:

  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
  • Radiology
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Laboratory technology

Each of the scholarships awarded covers payment for tuition, books, and fees associated with the degree or certification.

Scholarship Application Requirements

  • Scholarships are only for residents of Southern Maryland: St. Mary's, Charles and Calvert counties.
