About the Scholarships

Stanly Health Foundation awards two scholarships annually to students pursuing careers in healthcare:

The Stanly Health Foundation C. B. Crook Family Scholarship ($5,000) honors the years of philanthropic work by the late C. B. Crook and his wife, Betty. The Crooks have been philanthropic champions for the Foundation since its inception in 1990, and Mr. Crook led the Stanly Society for more than twenty years. Scholarship Application.

The Stanly Health Foundation Roy and Lou Hinson Scholarship ($2,500) celebrates the late Roy Hinson’s forty-one years of dedicated service to our hospital and his wife, Lou, who is retired from public education and provided many years of volunteer support to the Roy M. Hinson Cancer Center. Scholarship Application.

Both of these scholarships require that students have completed at least 60 hours of undergraduate course work by June of the year of application and be accepted into a healthcare field of study.
