Award Description:

The MiTio Foundation is now offering two $1000.00 scholarships (one in June the other in December) to any bilingual student seeking a career in health care. The process and purpose is simple - many college students currently struggle to meet the financial requirements of pursuing their education, even with the help of financial aid and other scholarship programs.

Eligibility Guidelines:

Any high school senior or college student who is bilingual in English and another language (fully fluent in each) is eligible to apply for the 2010 MiTio Foundation Scholarship. The criteria for the award include: presenting a letter of acceptance or letter of enrollment from a school of accredited higher education; presenting a copy of their application to provide verification of degree field related to healthcare; submitting a 500 word essay; presenting proof of proficiency in English and the other language. Students must submit a 500 word essay explaining what language they speak and how they would use their bilingual skills for patient care. The committee members will select the scholarship recipients based on the content of their essay. Additional consideration will be given to those who have made any interpreting contributions to their local community/hospital. Essays are to be submitted via e-mail at discussions@mitio.org
