Scholarship Program

The Providence Montana Health Foundation’s Knowledge Fund was established to assist employees of Providence St. Patrick Hospital and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center who desire to change careers, further their education or complete a degree while working at Providence.

Each year, scholarships are awarded to employees based on merit. Employees must have been employed a minimum of one year at time of application and maintain their employment with Providence St. Patrick Hospital or Providence St. Joseph Medical Center during their schooling and after its completion for at least six months. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the institution indicated on the scholarship application, once evidence of acceptance has been provided to the Foundation. Scholarship funds are to be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies.

Scholarship application process

Applicants must complete the Knowledge Fund Scholarship Application form and submit two current letters of recommendation, including one from a current manager/supervisor. A short essay, of 300 words or less, is also required, which outlines the applicant’s goals for their education and future career plans.

The letters of recommendation, essay and signed application form must be received by Kerry Schultz in the Learning Center.
