DEARBORN — Oakwood Healthcare awarded 10 scholarships to high school students through the Oakwood High School Student Volunteer Scholarship program for the 2014-15 academic year.
The program recognizes students who have volunteered at an Oakwood hospital. The $1,000 scholarships are based on the number of volunteer hours students have logged, their grade point average and an essay, and are awarded to those who intend to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.
