Career Climb Scholarship Application

Application Deadline: April 30 (5:00 p.m. EST)

This is a $2,500 scholarship award. Up to 10 scholarships may be awarded in a calendar year.

FHCA’s Career Climb Scholarship promotes advancement in non-nursing long term care careers for selected member nursing home and assisted living facility employees. Scholarships have supported individuals seeing to further their careers
in the areas of physical therapy, long term care administration,
certified dietary manager, for example.

Applicants should be employed in a FHCA member facility with a length of employment of at least six (6) months; be currently accepted in course of study (other than nursing) in an accredited school; and be willing to pledge that, upon successful completion of all coursework and any certifications which may be required for practice, will work as such in a FHCA member facility for at least one year.

This program was established through an initial grant from the Life Care Centers of America. Today, this scholarship is funded in part from an Alliant Community Health Impact Grant and proceeds raised from the FHCA annual Golf Tournament.
