The E.MAP/1889 Foundation Critical Skills Scholarship Endowment

E.MAP (The Employers Medical Access Partnership) and 1889 Foundation have teamed up to create an important scholarship endowment fund.

The purpose of the Fund is to provide $1,000 scholarships to worthy recipients who are pursuing careers in a medical profession. Our goal is to encourage area students to receive their medical educations locally and hopefully to serve as medical professionals within our community for years to come. The recipients will be determined by the Director of the Conemaugh School of Nursing and applied to a student in a critical skills curriculum.

Thanks to the generous contributions from the following organizations who have made the endowment possible:

  • AmeriServ Financial
  • David N. Straight
  • 1889 Foundation
  • The Cambria/Somerset Labor Management Committee (via proceeds from their annual charitable golf event)
  • E.MAP
  • UPMC Health Plan

E.MAP has awarded more than 60 scholarships to deserving students since 2010.
