Leonardtown, Maryland With the goal of recruiting specially-trained associates, MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital awards annual scholarships to candidates pursuing degrees in health care that are essential to the care of our patients. Of these career options, just a small sampling includes registered nurses, imaging technologists, respiratory therapists, lab technologists, and pharmacists.

In return for a pre-determined length of employment with the hospital after graduation, students may receive up to $3,000 per semester for four years toward tuition, required books, lab fees, and school-appointed uniforms. Preference is given to students in Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties.

Both recent high school graduates and returning students are encouraged to apply for the scholarship, which is funded through generous donations from local businesses and individuals. Proceeds from the MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital 2018 Gala benefitted the program, which has now assisted 149 students and counting.
