Opportunities for tuition assistance and exciting careers at Norton Healthcare
Thinking about college? Need help with tuition? The Norton Healthcare Scholars Program will help cover your tuition while you work toward a health care degree.
In partnership with public and private Kentucky and Southern Indiana colleges and universities, Norton Healthcare Scholars Program is a student loan program that provides educational funding to students interested in pursuing certain types of health care careers. In addition to tuition and eligible expense reimbursement, this innovative program creates work and mentoring opportunities in your chosen career field.

As a Norton Healthcare Scholar, you not only get help with college - you are also on track to a great career with Norton Healthcare. As the largest health care system in Kentucky, we offer the choices and flexibility not found anywhere else. And our network of hospitals, Immediate Care Centers, and Physician Practices offer a complete spectrum of career opportunities, from newborns to elder care.
How It Works...
You go to school full-time, studying your chosen health care career field at a partnering college or university. Students must be accepted into their major at a college or university before applying to the Norton Healthcare Scholars Program.
The amount of funding is based on the program in which the student is enrolled. All participants are eligible for up to $6,000 per year towards tuition and eligible expenses. The amount received per year is based on the cost of the program in which you are enrolled and the number of years you participate in the Norton Healthcare Scholars Program. The maximum amount of funding available from Norton Healthcare Scholars Program is $24,000.
Funds will be paid directly to your school to be placed into your account.
The Norton Healthcare Scholars Program is a partnership with many public and private Kentucky and Southern Indiana colleges and universities.
