Five $1,000 scholarships are awarded to area high school students who will be majoring in a health care  field. One $1,000 scholarship has been established for a student currently enrolled in a nursing, radiology,  medical laboratory or respiratory therapist program at a college or university. The final scholarship  program is for one Pillar III medical student at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of  Medicine in the amount of $5,000. 

Students at high schools within the Yankton Medical Clinic, P.C. service area, which includes high  schools in South Dakota and Nebraska, are eligible to apply. Applicants must meet minimum GPA or  ACT score, display active extracurricular activities and volunteerism, have an interest in health care or  current major in specific fields and plan to return to within 50 miles of Yankton to work.
