    PORTSMOUTH—The Foundation for Seacoast Health is proud to announce a scholarship opportunity for students pursuing health-related careers. Since establishing their scholarship fund, The Foundation for Seacoast Health has awarded more than 660 scholarships to 320 individuals, totaling over $2.2 million in support.

    Since 1984, the core mission of the Foundation for Seacoast Health has been to promote health and wellness throughout the Seacoast and enrich the lives of citizens through community-based supports and services. They define health as a broad sense – one that includes a positive physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

    The scholarships will be awarded to students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in a health-related field of study. The awards are based primarily on academic performance, personal achievements, extracurricular activity, and community involvement. The applicant must be a primary resident in one of the following towns for a minimum of two years: Portsmouth, Rye, New Castle, Greenland, Newington, and North Hampton; Kittery, Eliot, and York, Maine.

    The awarded students will be announced prior to June 30 and will be invited along with their families to a breakfast hosted by the Foundation for Seacoast Health Board of Trustees in their honor. The deadline to apply is April 30 and the Foundation for Seacoast Health encourages all students to apply who meet the requirements.

    Foundation for Seacoast Health, established in 1984, is the Seacoast’s catalyst for positive change and serves to improve the physical, mental, and social well-being of the community. For information about the company’s scholarship, visit https://ffsh.org/scholarships/, or call (603) 422-8200.
