Foundation news | Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Applications for the St. Claire Foundation's 2011 Richard J. Bausch Family Scholarship and Sister Mary Jeannette Wess S.N.D. Scholarship are now available.

The Bausch scholarship is an annual $1,000 award intended to assist a college student from Appalachia who is pursuing a health sciences degree. To qualify, an applicant must be a pre-professional health sciences student enrolled in a community/technical college or university program and a resident of an Appalachian county as defined by the federal government.

The Richard J. Bausch Family Scholarship is funded by an endowment that was established in memory of the father of Gregory Bausch, PharmD, SCR Vice President of Regional Affairs.

To qualify for the $750 Sister Mary Jeannette Wess S.N.D. Scholarship, you must:

  • Be at least a college junior by Fall Semester 2011;
  • Be working on a bachelor's degree or higher in any degree plan at an accredited college or university;
  • Have graduated from a high school in one of the following St. Claire Regional Medical Center service-area counties: Bath, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Lewis, Magoffin, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Rowan or Wolfe;
  • Be able to demonstrate academic achievement, leadership, service and financial need.

The Sister Mary Jeannette Wess S.N.D. Scholarship is named in honor of SCR's president/CEO from 1983-1995. Prior to her death in January 1996, she requested that donations be made to establish a scholarship fund to assist students from SCR's service region.

The application deadline for both scholarships is May 25. For more information or to request a scholarship application, contact Tom Lewis, SCR director of development, at (606) 783-6511 or via email at
