Educational Scholarships

Education is the key to career advancement, and you can finance yours with the help of a scholarship from the Educational Foundation of the Ohio Health Care Association (EFOHCA).

EFOHCA was established in 1989 with the primary mission of fostering careers in long term care. Since we began, we have helped adults, like you, go to school to advance their professional careers while contributing to a better long term care workforce. We are proud of the fact that since our establishment in 1989, EFOHCA have awarded over $1.2 M in scholarships to nearly 700 individuals.  You too could be eligible to receive either a $2,500 or $4,000 scholarship for the upcoming school year beginning July 1, 2014.  In addition, EFOHCA awards scholarships for certification programs in the amount equal to 50% of the cost of the certification program, not to exceed $1,500.  

A promising future in long term care awaits you. Apply for an EFOHCA scholarship today!
