Yankton Medical Clinic, P.C. created a scholarship program 27 years ago to promote higher education and to provide resources for area students interested in health care. The scholarship program helps YMC fulfill its vision to be an independent regional center of medical excellence committed to quality care and medical education. The application process for the academic year 2024-25 is currently open, and applications are due by March 15, 2024.
YMC awards five $1,000 scholarships to area high school students who will be majoring in a health care field; one $1,000 scholarship for a student currently enrolled in a nursing, radiology, medical laboratory or respiratory therapist program at a college or university; and one $5,000 scholarship awarded to a Pillar III medical student at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine.
Guidance counselors at high schools in South Dakota and Nebraska, within the YMC service area, have received the 2024-25 application and information to share with their students and encourage them to apply. A list of eligible high schools, full details, criteria, and applications for each scholarship, can be found on our website at www.yanktonmedicalclinic.com/scholarships/. Students are encouraged to be proactive in going online to read the updated qualifications, to complete the requirements, and get their applications mailed in.
