 OSF Saint Clare Scholarships

Growing the next generation of caregivers

Are you considering a career in health care?

OSF Saint Clare is now accepting applications for the 2023 OSF Saint Clare Health Career Scholarship, Pierson Nursing Scholarship and Harold Morine Scholarship.

Abbie Jean Gunning was the first Auxiliary President. In 1960, the first scholarship in her honor was awarded. Following integration with OSF HealthCare, the scholarship was renamed the OSF Saint Clare Health Career Scholarship. The Morine Scholarship is an award bequeathed by Harold Morine in 1981 in memory of his wife, Marilyn Morine, who was a nurse at Perry Memorial Hospital. The Pierson Nursing Scholarship is an award bequeathed in memory of Hilma S. Pierson, Ralph H. Pierson and Martha J. Pierson for those pursuing a nursing career.

Scholarships are available to students who will be graduating from high school or are enrolled in a post-secondary school, community college, college or university in a health care career. Applicants must reside in Bureau County, be a current OSF Saint Clare Mission Partner or immediate relative of an OSF Saint Clare Mission Partner.

We encourage those returning to school for advanced education in healthcare to apply for a scholarship award. Applicants must have a permanent residence within Bureau County and be pursuing a health care career, including but not limited to, nursing, radiology, lab technology, physical therapy, occupational therapy or pre-med.
