  • Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
  • Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
  • Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
  • St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children
  • Penn State Hershey Medical Center
  • Lehigh Valley Hospital – Muhlenberg

Scholarship recipients receive up to $2,000 a year for a maximum of 4 years, as long as the student remains in good standing with the college or trade school and completes a volunteer requirement at an Eastern PA event each year.
