Lowell C. Kruse Scholarship Open

Mosaic Life Care Foundation is now accepting applications for the Lowell C. Kruse Healthy Choices. Healthy Lives. Scholarship.

The Kruse Scholarship provides financial assistance to a first-year, full-time graduate student studying in areas leading to improved quality of life for the residents of the Mosaic Life Care service region. This includes careers in health care administration, early childhood development, not-for-profit management and educational leadership.

The Lowell C. Kruse Scholarship of $10,000 will be awarded annually. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is June 15, 2020.

Katie Ashley, a 2018 recipient of the scholarship, said she is grateful for the monetary contribution to her education.

“The scholarship was a tremendous financial gift, but the application process also helped me to examine my motives for obtaining a graduate degree in public health,” Ashley said. “I was able to make connections with several like-minded people in our community.”
