How can we help you?

Margaret H. Varney Scholarship Endowment

In 1998, the Margaret H. Varney Scholarship Endowment Fund was established from the Margaret Varney Endowment to honor Edna Gates Wildermuth and Alton F. and Helen E. Weber. This Endowment Fund was established for the purpose of supporting health education programs in the communities serviced by Bronson Healthcare.

Since 2008, money from this endowment provided scholarships to Bronson employee attending Kalamazoo Valley Community College. It also provides scholarships for the KRESA Health Career Scholarship Allied Health Program, Kalamazoo College HOSA, and WMU Bronson School of Nursing Scholarship.

In 2014, a new scholarship opportunity for Bronson nurses was announced. A Nursing Scholarship available for application submission for RN’s in our Bronson Healthcare System. For example, in 2015, we provided five BSN students with $3,000 and three MSN students with $5,000 in scholarships.
