Employees of Scott Memorial Hospital will be given preference, but all adults are invited to submit an application. Students may attend any in-state or out-of-state accredited college or university, and distance learning is allowed.
Applications are due Monday, Sept. 16 and can be accessed at www.www.scottcountyfoundation.org.

The Scott Memorial Hospital Guild Brunton-Mumford Scholarship was established from the Martha Jane Brunton Fleenor estate. Former Scott Memorial Hospital Administrator Ken Mumford and his wife, Mildred, were long time friends of the Brunton family, and helped guide decisions concerning the generous estate donations.
