It is with great enthusiasm that we are once-again announcing the Sisters@Heart scholarship, which will be awarded during the Spring of 2021! This scholarship will be awarded to two individuals that have been affected by heart and stroke related illnesses. This includes individuals that have been impacted themselves or through a family member or close caregiver. The scholarship, in the amount of $1,000 each, will be given for the use of education or education-related expenses.
The mission of Sisters@Heart, Inc. is to improve the lives of those affected by heart disease and stroke through funding research projects and providing financial assistance to families in need that are battling a health issue associated with heart disease and stroke.
We realize the courage and strength involved in living with and overcoming heart and stroke related illnesses and the importance of education as a means of awareness and prevention.
This scholarship reflects our commitment to educating our greater community and we are excited to support the recipients in their quest to better themselves and their opportunity for growth through education. Past recipients include:
- Cameron Cornetta 2019
- Connor Donovan 2020
- McKenzie Fry 2019
- Sydney Fahey 2020
- Julia Guthrie 2020
Our ideal scholarship recipient is a student who has been directly impacted by a heart or stroke health related problem in his/her life or in the life of someone in his/her family. This individual should personify the qualities of strength, perseverance and kindness while working to improve his/her life or the lives of others. Recipients should be planning for high school or college for the upcoming academic year.
Please consider those in your network, neighborhood, community, or schools that may be interested in applying for this meaningful scholarship.
