Adventist Health System has undertaken a business endeavor which provides endowments to benefit the allied health and business programs at the Adventist colleges in the Southern and Southwestern states.
The company, Adventist Care Centers, Inc. (ACC), is managed through a partnership between Sunbelt Health Care Centers (SHCC) and the Adventist educational institutions. "Adventist Care Centers will expand awareness and the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, while supporting and providing endowments for higher education programs," said Glenn Choban, president of SHCC. "These endowments will result in a continuing flow of funds for partnering colleges through the acquisition and operation of nursing homes."
Recipients of the Mardian J. Blair Endowed Scholarship for Healthcare Management are graduate or undergraduate students enrolled in on-campus programs at Southwestern Adventist University who are pursuing careers in healthcare management, financial management, or related finance curriculum, nursing administration, long-term care or a related academic discipline that would be compatible with the goals of this scholarship program to support healthcare related professions.
Recipients will have a minimum 3.5 GPA in the major and a 3.25 overall GPA, they will have demonstrated the potential for leadership as observed by instructors, must have the recommendation of the department chairs, and must be of high moral character.
