Scholarship program

The Villages® Regional Hospital (TVRH) Auxiliary Foundation is pleased to offer scholarships to assist and encourage education in healthcare-related courses of study. These scholarships are available annually to hospital team members as well as high school seniors residing in the hospital's service area.

In 2018, the TVRH Auxiliary Foundation awarded 15 scholarships to current team members who are furthering their education in the healthcare field. By funding the education of our team, we are able to enhance the skillful talent we have to care for the patients in our growing community. The Foundation also awarded 14 scholarships to area high school seniors to pursue their education in healthcare sciences.

We would like to thank our scholarship partners, both corporate and individual, for their dedication to continuing education for current and future healthcare professionals. It is because of your generosity that we are able to enhance the healthcare field in our own community.
