Bellefontaine, OH –Thirty-six area students pursuing a degree in the medical field were recently awarded medical scholarships and loans by Mary Rutan Foundation.

With a strong commitment to its Medical Scholarship and Loan Program, Mary Rutan Foundation awarded a total of $56,556 to seventeen nursing, eighteen allied health and one medical student this academic school year. Since 1992, this amount brings the total awarded to Logan County residents to just over $1.8 million.

"We look at this program as an investment in the communities we serve and in the future of health care at Mary Rutan Hospital", says Tammy Allison, MRF chief operating officer. "There is currently a shortage of health care professionals in Ohio and in our community; many times the cost of education is the barrier.
