FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital medical staff has established a scholarship fund for high school seniors.

One $500 scholarship will be awarded to a student from each of the following schools: Mt. Abram High in Salem, Mt. Blue High in Farmington, Rangeley Lakes Regional and Spruce Mountain High in Jay.

If a school does not have a scholarship applicant, the scholarship will be awarded to a qualified applicant from one of the other schools.

The applicant should demonstrate a strong motivation to pursue a health care career, along with academic excellence and a dedication to community service.

Application requirements include a personal essay displaying future career goals; a current academic transcript; and two letters of recommendation: one from a health care professional and another from a high school educator.

The applications can be mailed to the Medical Staff Office, Franklin Memorial Hospital, 111 Franklin Health Commons, Farmington, ME 04938. The application deadline is Saturday, May 1.
