Applicants must be legal residents of Boone County, Indiana and be enrolled in a full-time medical professional program fully accredited by the appropriate accrediting entity. Selection of loan recipients will not be based upon the financial needs of the applicant. First priority will be given to applicants who pursue educational programs of direct benefit to Witham Health Services. Upon completion of the course of study, applicants must agree to work at Witham Health Services until the loan funds received are repaid in full via hours worked, or monetarily repay the loan with interest. The medical education loan is intended to assist with tuition, books and other related expenses. The loan is limited to four (4) years of full-time study or less.
