For the 16th consecutive year, recipients of scholarships given to children of The Bellevue Hospital’s (TBH) employees were announced during National Hospital Week, May 7-13, 2017. The Robert Regula Employee Children’s Scholarship Program honored 10 high school and college students this year.
“The scholarships began as a way of investing in the future of healthcare and of providing an additional benefit for our employees,” said Michael K. Winthrop, president and CEO of The Bellevue Hospital. “We are pleased to again offer the scholarships to a deserving group of individuals,” Winthrop added.
TBH awards $1,500 scholarships to eligible dependents of its full or part time employees who have worked at least two consecutive years at the hospital. The students are to be enrolled in post high school academic programs, with a minimum of three of the scholarships reserved for students in healthcare-related fields of study. Employees must first make application for the scholarship prior to March 31. The Scholarship Committee then meets to select the finalists for the award, and the recipients are announced during National Hospital Week. Click Here to View Scholarship Winners.

The scholarship participant must volunteer at least two years total during high school. This year, The Bellevue Hospital Foundation awarded two Volunteer Scholarships. Recipients were LeAnn Erf, daughter of Kevin & Laurie Erf, of Bellevue; and Allison Dendinger, daughter of Michael & Sandra Dendinger, of Bellevue. Click Here to View Scholarship Winners.
