Welcome to the 2021 IHERF Scholarship Program

Application Deadline Extended to April 15, 2021

About Us:

The Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) is proud to support the Health Care Careers Scholarship program. Available through the Iowa Hospital Education and Research Foundation (IHERF), an IHA subsidiary, these scholarships of up to $7,000 ($3,500 per year for a maximum of two years) each have supported higher education for more than 560 Iowa college students.

The Emergency Medical Technology/Technician (EMT) Certification program has been added to the qualifying programs.  The certification program will be awarded $1,000 and require one year of work after graduation for a company serving Iowa hospitals.

60 scholarships will be awarded in 2021.

The ultimate goal of this program is to fill Iowa health care positions that currently have a notable number of openings by offering significant financial support to students seeking health care education or training.  In exchange for that financial support, each award recipient must commit to working one year in an Iowa hospital for each year of scholarship award.
Placement opportunities will be identified for each IHA geographic district (a map is included with the application).  Scholarship applications will be scored, and awards made based on each applicant’s qualifications. All portions of the application form must be submitted by March 30 April 15, 2021.  

We're excited to launch the application process this year and are looking forward to your submissions!
