RIH Foundation’s Give and Grow Professional Development Scholarships

At the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, we recognize that it takes a huge team to support patient care at RIH. Every staff member plays a valuable role in health care delivery, even those who do not interact with patients directly. The Foundation is committed to supporting the personal development and career goals of all RIH staff.

The Give and Grow Educational Fund supports professional development for RIH employees by providing scholarships for participation in courses, conferences and workshops which advance job knowledge, skills and qualifications which ultimately contribute to excellence in patient care.

Applications are currently being accepted by the RIH Foundation. The application deadline is Monday, May 1st at 4:00 pm.
