Kaiser Permanente Health Care Career Scholarship

“In 2008, Kaiser Permanente Northwest founded the Health Care Career Scholarship Program to help students in Oregon and Southwest Washington achieve their dreams of becoming health care professionals. Since then, Kaiser Permanente Northwest has invested more than $2.3 million in the program, including scholarship awards totaling more than $2 million.

Scholarships are awarded annually to at least one qualified senior at each of 133 public high schools in the Kaiser Permanente Northwest service area, which spans from north of Longview, Washington, to Eugene, Oregon (Kaiser Permanente plan to open an office in Eugene in 2016).”

Scholarship amounts for college-bound high school seniors are $2,000, $5,000, or $10,000. The majority of the scholarships are for $2,000. Those in higher amounts are awarded to the most qualified applicants from across all eligible high schools. The $5,000 and $10,000 awards are split into two equal payments distributed in fall of the first and second years of college. All awards are nonrenewable.

Once scholarship recipients have reached their second year of college, they are eligible to:

  • Apply to be considered for an additional one-time scholarship of $2,000 to be utilized toward their third year of college.
  • Apply for paid summer internships at Kaiser Permanente that are available exclusively to scholarship recipients.”
