For the 20th consecutive year, recipients of scholarships given to children of The Bellevue Hospital’s (TBH) employees were announced during National Hospital Week, May 9-15, 2021. The Robert Regula Employee Children’s Scholarship Program honored 10 high school and college students this year.
“The scholarships began as a way of investing in the future of healthcare and of providing an additional benefit for our employees,” said Timothy A. Buit, president and CEO of The Bellevue Hospital. “We are pleased to again offer the scholarships to a deserving group of individuals,” Buit added.
TBH awards $1,500 scholarships to eligible dependents of its full or part time employees who have worked at least two consecutive years at the hospital. The students are to be enrolled in post high school academic programs, with a minimum of three of the scholarships reserved for students in healthcare-related fields of study.
Students must submit an application for the scholarship prior to March 31. The Scholarship Committee then meets to select the finalists for the award, and the recipients are announced during National Hospital Week. This year’s recipients are as follows:
