Joy, relief and gratitude.
These were the emotions that six of this year’s HCA Healthcare Scholars shared upon receiving the news of their scholarships. There were 789 student recipients this year, who earned a total of $2,641,000 in scholarships from the HCA Healthcare Foundation. These college students include future nurses, doctors and healthcare professionals, many of whom are currently working in addition to attending school full-time. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each of them – for some, it hindered their ability to work or to attend classes. Here, they express how being an HCA Healthcare Scholar has significantly helped alleviate the financial burden of completing their education.
