Partnership for Better Health Funds Provide Scholarships to Nurse Aide Students at HACC

HARRISBURG, Pa. – Future students in the noncredit Nurse Aide Program at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, can apply for free tuition money, thanks to a grant award of $89,920. The HACC Foundation received the grant award from the Partnership for Better Health, a community foundation that supports sustainable solutions to health challenges.
 
The grant will provide scholarships for students in HACC’s noncredit Nurse Aide Program during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years. Additionally, the grant will infuse $50,000 into a new Partnership for Better Health Scholarship Endowment for noncredit health careers programs.
 
The scholarship awards will empower students to complete the training they need to work in high-demand, family-sustaining healthcare jobs. Scholarship recipients must reside in the Partnership for Better Health’s service area, which includes parts of Adams, Cumberland and Perry counties.
 
As a result of the grant award, families will enjoy improved economic wellbeing, and healthcare providers will have access to a pool of highly qualified workers trained in their backyard.
