About PCHF Scholarships

Three PCHF Healthcare Scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. These scholarships are to be used for the financial assistance of a student in post-secondary healthcare education.

Every year, one scholarship is awarded at each Paulding County high school.

  • Antwerp High School
  • Paulding High School
  • Wayne Trace High School
  • Home-schooled students will also be eligible and will be placed in one of the three districts according to their addresses.

The scholarships will be awarded to the top candidate from each of the three high schools in Paulding County. However, if there are no applicants from a school or the applications submitted are not of acceptable quality, PCHF may choose not to award a student scholarship to that school.

All scholarships are a one-time award.
