Kendrick Scholars 2020

Our 2020 Scholars

For the 17th consecutive year, the Kendrick Foundation is proud to provide financial support to Morgan County residents pursuing careers in healthcare. The Kendrick Foundation awarded 22 students up to $15,000 each to cover tuition and required fees for the 2020-21 academic year.

Kendrick scholars are selected through a competitive process based on academic achievement, extra-curricular involvement, and community service. To be eligible for a Kendrick Foundation scholarship, students must be Morgan County residents pursuing a health-related degree at an accredited public or private non-profit institution of higher education, with an intention to return to Morgan County to work in a healthcare-related field.

“We are pleased to announce our 2020 scholars. These bright, accomplished individuals represent the future of healthcare,” said Greg McKelfresh, Kendrick Foundation President. “This year, in particular, we’ve become acutely aware of the importance of our first responders, healthcare and public health practitioners, and the need for strong healthcare and public health systems and infrastructures.”

“Morgan County is a designated healthcare professional shortage area for primary care and mental health,” said Keylee Wright, Kendrick Foundation Executive Director. “In addition to making a difference in the lives of our scholars and their families, awarding scholarships is a strategy to potentially address these shortages and increase our county’s level of educational attainment.”
