The Saline Memorial Health Foundation provides a scholarship program that offers opportunities to individuals in our community looking to further their education. Scholarships are made possible through our annual Swing Fore Saline and Gathering on the Greens event along with private donors who partner with the SMH Foundation to contribute and support the cause. The value of the scholarship will vary in dollar value depending on available funds and the number of applicants. The value may range from $500-$5,000 per semester. The scholarship is awarded on a yearly basis.
To support the SMH Scholarship Fund, you can participate in the Swing Fore Saline Tournament, make a donation online or contact the SMH Foundation, 501-776-6743.
