Each year St. Charles Foundation awards scholarships to caregivers throughout St. Charles Health System. Scholarships are available for caregivers in nursing programs and for education or training related to current position or career advancement.

The Caregiver General Education Scholarship was established to assist St. Charles Health System caregivers who are seeking education related to their current position and/or to encourage career advancement within the organization. The fund was created by generous donors and is administered by St. Charles Foundation and Clinical Education at St. Charles Health System.

The Arlene Carlton Nursing Scholarship was established in 2010 to assist St. Charles Health System caregivers who are currently enrolled in a nursing program. The fund was created through a generous donation by Arlene Carlton’s family and is administered by St. Charles Foundation and Clinical Education at St. Charles Health System.

The CNA Level II Scholarship was established to help CNA Level I holders acquire their CNA Level II certificate. It is sponsored by St. Charles Foundation and is open to St. Charles Caregivers as well as healthcare professionals in the community.
