IHERF Scholarships Available for Healthcare Students

Wednesday, 13 January 2010

Through the Iowa Hospital Education and Research Foundation (IHERF), a subsidiary of the Iowa Hospital Association, Iowa’s hospitals have created a scholarship program to assist students pursing careers in healthcare.  The scholarships are designed to fill specific Iowa hospital workforce shortage needs.  Students can receive up to $6,000 in assistance from the program.

Eligible candidates for the scholarship must:
• Be enrolled in an accredited health care education program listed on the application.
• Be within two years of completing your professional education.
• Be willing to work for an Iowa hospital (one year per scholarship awarded).

Since 2005, when the first scholarships were awarded, 136 students have received IHERF Health Care Career Scholarships, with a total value of $408,000. Two St. Anthony employees have been the recipients of the IHERF scholarship in recent years.

Applications are available in the Human Resources department.  For more information or to obtain an application, contact Pam Gridley ( at 515-288-1955.  Applications may also be downloaded at
