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, 2015.  All applications will be submitted online at the IHERF scholarship website (www.iowahospitalscholarships.org), which will help students confirm their eligibility before beginning the application process.
