Students Nicole Crowley of Windham, NH, and Aidan Finn of Lowell, are the 2021 recipients of the Lowell General Hospital Medical Staff Scholarship.
The Medical Staff Scholarship program provides financial support to graduating high school seniors who are continuing in a full-time educational program. Students are recognized for exceptional accomplishments in academic, cultural and civic pursuits during their high school careers. The Medical Staff Scholarship Fund is established and maintained by the physicians of Lowell General Hospital.
Each year the Medical Staff awards two scholarships to support students who are Lowell General Hospital employees, or children of employees, who graduate from secondary school in the spring and are continuing their education in the fall. These scholarships are renewable for up to four years. The Scholarship Committee reviewed 17 applications this year, and selected Nicole and Aidan as the recipients for 2021.
