Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation Bursary Program



Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation


The VCHWF will be issuing educational bursaries to our health care workers, to continue their education so they can best serve you.

Vulcan County Health and Wellness Foundation (VCHWF) would like to promote access to learning opportunities for existing Health Care Workers in our community. Supplementary courses are available for staff members to upgrade their education and specialize in various medical skills.

The foundation will cover the cost of the course for individuals as long as they meet the following criteria:
 They currently work within Vulcan County.
 They have medical certification in LPN, RPN or other health care profession.
 They are recommended by their acting Supervisor at the time.

Application Process
The Foundation does not have an application deadline, as we realize that courses are offered throughout the year.
 Applicants may apply by completing the application form before the course commences and submitting it to the board. Appraisal may take a couple of months depending on timing of board meetings.
 Applications will be accepted after a course has been completed, however, approval depends on the current funding and application numbers.
 A short write-up on the benefits to the applicant’s career and the community is required. This may be used for promotion for VCHWF in the future.
 Inquiries can be made to the VCHWF Operations Manager. Vulcan County Health and Wellness Foundation believes the highest quality health care available is the RIGHT of every citizen of Vulcan County. We are looking forward to working together to
achieve this goal.
