Melton Scholarships Offered for 2024

When former RMH president Carter Melton, Jr. retired from the hospital at the end of 2007, he and his wife, Connie, established the Melton Endowment Fund to provide scholarships for the children and grandchildren of Sentara RMH Employees. Now, in its 17th year, the Melton Fund will be awarding two $3,653.50 scholarships.

Applicants must be the children or grandchildren of SRMH employees. Grandchildren, in order to be eligible, must reside in the SRMH grandparent’s home and be supported by them.

Preference will be given to applicants:

*pursuing a health career.

*planning to attend The Virginia Military Institute  or Longwood University, the alma maters of Carter and Connie Melton, respectively.

However, if no applicants meet the above criteria, the scholarships will then be awarded to the most promising applicant.

Application forms are available below for printing, or can be picked-up at the RMH Foundation office, located in the Lower Level of the main hospital (2010 Health Campus Drive, Harrisonburg). Alternatively, applicants can complete the application online.

Applications must be received by the Foundation office on or before Friday, June 7, 2024.
The winners will be announced by June 30.
