2013 Heart of Tomorrow Scholarship Program

Sanford Health has developed the Heart of Tomorrow Scholarship Program to assist Sanford Health employees’ dependent children who are planning to pursue post-secondary education in a two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical program. These scholarships will be offered on a yearly basis for full-time study at any accredited post-secondary institution the student chooses.

The Heart of Tomorrow Scholarship Program is administered by Sanford Health. Sanford Health is an equal opportunity employer/educational institution and will grant awards without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, disability, national origin or any other category protected by state, local or federal law, regulation or rule.

These scholarship awards are not renewable.  A student may reapply to the program each year they meet the eligibility requirements.  Each applicant can only be awarded the Heart of Tomorrow Scholarship twice during their post-secondary studies. ($2000 lifetime scholarship award limit.)

Scholarships are for undergraduate studies only. The scholarship is considered a gift to the Sanford Health employee and therefore is subject to payroll taxes. Only one scholarship will be awarded per family per year.
