We provide up to eleven scholarships annually to serve our community and the next generation.
Sacred Journey Hospice Foundation supports hospice education and research. This can come in the form of educational presentations or scholarships. Currently, scholarships are awarded to students pursuing a post-secondary career in a hospice-related field or any student who has experienced the loss of an immediate family member (available to Georgia residents only).
2024 Scholarship Applications are available online:
**NEW DEADLINE TO APPLY MARCH 30***
All Documents including Reference Letters must be received by March 30
In 2023, the Foundation awarded 7 $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors and/or students currently enrolled in a college or university. These students are pursuing a hospice-related or medical career and/or experienced the loss of an immediate family member (parent, sibling).
In 2014, the Foundation added an additional scholarship, The Rheda Wanstreet Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to a Sacred Journey Hospice employee or volunteer or a child, stepchild or grandchild of a current Sacred Journey Hospice employee or volunteer. The scholarship is named after Ms. Wanstreet, a faithful hospice volunteer.
