Mary Rutan Foundation awards and loans


Submitted story



Twenty-nine Logan County residents pursuing a degree in the medical field were awarded medical scholarships and loans by Mary Rutan Foundation.

With a strong commitment to its Medical Scholarship and Loan Program, Mary Rutan Foundation awarded $41,900 to area students this academic school year. Since 1992, this amount brings the total awarded to Logan County residents to just over $1.7 million.

“Mary Rutan Foundation is committed to the health and wellness of this community. In addition to the numerous community health and wellness programs and services funded annually by the Foundation, we believe it is important to maintain our medical scholarship program”, says Tammy Allison, foundation chief operating officer. “There is currently a shortage of health care professionals in the United States and in our community; many times the cost of education is the barrier. We understand the importance of investing in the future of individuals pursuing careers in the medical field. We look at this program as an investment in the future of health care at Mary Rutan Hospital and the communities we serve”, says Mrs. Allison.
