Sutter Health Scholarship Program Helps 235 Students Pursue College Dreams
Congratulations to the 235 students who earned college scholarships from Sutter Health for the 2016-2017 school year through our Van R. Johnson Sutter Scholars program.
For more than a decade, Sutter Health has proudly supported the continuing education of tomorrow’s leaders by offering these scholarships—named in honor of former longtime Sutter Health CEO Van Johnson— exclusively to college-age children and grandchildren of employees within the Sutter Health network. Sutter has awarded more than 4,600 scholarships, totaling $7.6 million, since 2002.
Scholarship winners attend a community college, four-year university, or graduate program and received awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Administrated by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, the program’s competitive review process considers multiple factors, including academic achievement, school and community involvement, work experience, educational and career goals, and special circumstances.
