The Jewish Community Foundation healthcare scholarship program with Yavapai College is a five-year initiative intended to address the expected shortage of healthcare professionals in coming years. Over the first three years of the program, scholarships have been awarded to 40 Yavapai College students in nursing and radiologic technology. The first cohort of scholarship recipients graduated in May 2014.
The scholarship program was introduced in 2012 with generous financial support from the Jewish Community Foundation. Overall, the JCF program will fund 96 full tuition and fee scholarships in the nursing and radiologic technology programs. The largest scholarship program in Yavapai College’s history, it’s designed to identify, support and train students who are committed to pursuing a healthcare career locally.
