For over 10 years, the McKee Medical Center Foundation has awarded scholarships to residents of northern Colorado; over $500,000 in total.
As part of its ongoing commitment to wellness, education, and ensuring we provide critical resources to those in our community, the McKee Foundation annually awards these scholarships to individuals and employees in the McKee Medical Center community. The McKee Foundation anticipates awarding $50,000 in scholarships annually to the best and brightest our community has to offer.
Through the kindness of donors to the McKee Foundation, high school graduates, adult learners, non-traditional students and family members of McKee employees can take advantage of three scholarship programs to help them live their best life possible.
Marge Schafer Nursing Scholarship
The Marge Schafer Nursing Scholarship was established by Val and Bill McCullough to honor McKee nurse, Marge Schafer. Because of Marge’s selfless generosity, the McCullough’s established this scholarship in her honor to annually award individuals who have been accepted into an accredited nursing program with plans to complete a bachelor’s or associate’s degree in nursing.
