Alliance Community Hospital Auxiliary at Aultman Alliance Accepting Scholarship Applications

The Alliance Community Auxiliary at Aultman Alliance is now accepting applications for the Dr. James J. Thomas Scholarship, a $1,500, non-renewable scholarship awarded annually to four local high school seniors interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field.

Applications are available in the hospital gift shop and high school guidance counselors. Applications must be submitted along with a copy of an official high school transcript by the deadline of March 22.

Chaired in 2024 by Mary Lou Williams, the Auxiliary Scholarship Fund was created in 1987 to provide financial assistance to students entering the healthcare field. The fund was named after the late Dr. James J. Thomas, a hospital anesthesiologist, who became a hospital volunteer upon his retirement.

Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee representing the auxiliary, healthcare professionals and the community. The committee awards points based on interest in the healthcare field, volunteer work, school and community involvement and general academic achievement.
