Allied Services Heinz Rehab Hospital is now accepting applications for its annual Rose Brader Scholarships.  The Rose Brader Scholarship Committee is offering several $500.00 scholarships to Luzerne County Residents who are pursuing an education or advanced training in Physical, Occupational, Speech, or Recreational Therapy.

The scholarships are named in honor of Rose Brader, a former Director of Volunteer Services at Heinz Rehab.   Rose was an outstanding community leader with a strong commitment to the advancement of rehabilitation medicine.  Established in 1990, over 100 scholarships have previously been awarded to local High School seniors, college students, and post graduate students.  Scholarship awards are based on scholastic achievement, a demonstrated interest in rehabilitation medicine, financial need, references, and personal interview (for finalists only).

Scholarship applications can be obtained from the Volunteer Department at Allied Services Heinz Rehab by calling 570-830-8935.  The deadline for the submission of applications is Tuesday, May 1, 2017.  The scholarships will be awarded in June 2017 at a reception hosted at Heinz Rehab.
