Mosaic Life Care Foundation is now accepting applications for the Lowell C. Kruse Healthy Choices. Healthy Lives. Scholarship.

This $10,000 scholarship provides financial assistance to a first-year, full-time graduate student studying in areas leading to improved quality of life for the residents of the Mosaic Life Care service region. This includes careers in health care administration, early childhood development, not-for-profit management, and educational leadership.

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is June 15, 2021.

Rebecka Ernst, a 2020 recipient of the scholarship, said she is grateful for the connections she was able to make during the scholarship process.  “I’ve always had the goal to come back to northwest Missouri to practice medicine,” Ernst said. “Having the experience of the scholarship interviews and being a scholar will help me in the future.”
