Sutter Health Scholarship Program Helps 230 Students Pursue College Dreams
Congratulations to the 230 students who earned college scholarships from Sutter Health for the 2017-2018 school year through our Van R. Johnson Sutter Scholars program.
For 15 years, 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 R. Johnson. The scholarships are available exclusively to college-age children and grandchildren of employees within the Sutter Health network. Since 2002, Sutter has awarded 4,890 scholarships, totaling $8.1 million.
Scholarship recipients attend a community college, four-year university or graduate program and received awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Administered 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.
