Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute seeks applicants for two scholarships

MINNEAPOLIS 05/01/2015

For many people, education is a crucial factor in obtaining meaningful employment and personal satisfaction. Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute administers two scholarships which can assist people hoping to pursue an education after high school.

The Scholarship for People with Disabilities provides financial assistance so that students with disabilities can increase their career options and enrich their lives through education and training. Funds are made available through the private donation of Melvin and Sally Mooty and will not exceed $1,000. Scholarship monies are to be used to fund tuition, books and supplies.

Visit the allinahealth.org for more information, including eligibility criteria and where to send applications. The deadline for applications for the Scholarship for People with Disabilities is May 31 of every year.

The EMPOWER Scholarship encourages and supports ethnically diverse students who are pursuing a career in a medical or rehabilitation field. It is made possible by a generous gift from the David M. Hersey Endowment Fund of the Courage Kenny Foundation.

Applicants must identify how they will use their education and training and demonstrate their interest in rehabilitation. Selection is based on the applicant's stated intentions, past achievements, need, and graduation ranking.

Visit allinahealth.org for more information, including eligibility criteria and where to send applications. The deadline for applications for the Scholarship for People with Disabilities is May 15 of every year.
