Providian Medical, a premiere provider of new and refurbished ultrasound, CT, and MRI medical equipment is looking to help future generations achieve their educational goals. The "Providian Medical Scholarship" is awarded bi-annually to help ease the burden of increasing educational costs today.
Increasing enrollment and increasing costs for a college education have made it increasingly difficult for students to get financial assistance as competition for scholarships continues to become more difficult.
We believe that education is key for anyone preparing to enter the workplace and embark on a career. To that end, we hope to play a small part in helping students achieve their educational goals with this bi-annual $500 scholarship.
To apply for the scholarship, you must submit an original essay of up to 1,500 words that describes how medical equipment technology has changed the face of a college course and curriculum. Entries can also include a look toward the future and how this area of study will continue to evolve and advance.
Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of principles and employees of Providian Medical. The decision of the panel will be based on originality, research, and quality of the essay submitted. Any student planning for a medical or veterinary career is especially encouraged to enter, however, students on any career path are also welcome to apply.
