Each year The Saint Andrew Foundation will provide up to $1000 to successful applicants. The recipients are to use the scholarships to attend an accredited two-year college or technical school of their choice that offers a program of study in the health science field. Eligible programs include but are not limited to:
• X-ray Technician
• Emergency Medical Technician
• Surgical Technician
• Diagnostic Medical Sonography Technician
• Echocardiography Technician

• LPN or GPN
The applicant must be a US citizen or hold a permanent resident visa card.
The Saint Andrew Foundation applications for scholarships are reviewed in April and October. Scholarships are awarded in May and November. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of their applications, letters of recommendation as well as confirmation of acceptance/attendance at a qualifying institution. Scholarships are awarded without regard to sex, race, religion, age, or sexual orientation. Decisions to award a scholarship are based solely on the information provided in the application, the quality of the essay, and the letters of recommendation
