Several Scholarships Offered by Queen’s North Hawai‘i Community Hospital
Queen’s North Hawai‘i Community Hospital in Waimea has several opportunities for residents of the Big Island to get some financial help for college.
Peggy Dineen-Orsini Scholarship
This $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a resident of Hawai‘i County enrolled in or accepted for enrollment in a National League of Nursing accredited program in the state or on the mainland. Private donors fund this scholarship in memory of Peggy Dineen-Orsini, who was a registered nurse from 1996-2004 at QNHCH. She is remembered for her compassion for her patients, colleagues and friends.
Queen’s North Hawai‘i Community Hospital Medical Staff scholarships
This medical staff offers two $1,000 scholarships to Hawai‘i County residents who demonstrate financial need and are currently enrolled in a program to obtain a health care profession degree.
Hawai‘i Emergency Physicians Associated scholarship
This $3,000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school student who demonstrates financial need and, without assistance, would have no opportunity to attend college. The association funds this program to encourage students to become productive members of the community through higher education.
Applications and instructions for each of the above scholarships are available online or by calling the hospital’s fund development office at 881-4420. Completed applications and required documents must be received or postmarked by May 31.
