TMH Foundation Awards $30K in Scholarships

WARREN, Ohio — The Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation yesterday awarded $3,000 scholarships to 10 Trumbull County residents who are pursuing careers in health care.

The $30,000 in awards matches the most ever provided by the foundation.

The foundation provides grants to initiatives that advance the health of Trumbull County residents, as well as scholarships to future health-care professionals. With assets of more than $13 million, the foundation is the successor to the Trumbull Memorial Hospital Foundation, which was created by the hospital in 1976. Since 2012, the foundation has operated separately from the hospital as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley.

The scholarship winners were chosen through an application process that considered students’ academic achievement, career plans and extracurricular activities.

Wilson, chairman of the health foundation and a lawyer with Harrington, Hoppe & Mitchell. “Our hospitals, research facilities and other healthcare organizations need good people today and will continue to need them in the future.”
