A Rundown of the Taylorville Memorial Foundation Scholarships

Taylorville Memorial Hospital has several 2024 scholarships available and awarded through the Taylorville Memorial Foundation. These scholarships concern graduates looking to pursue a degree in nursing or a medical field.

Kim Bourne, President and CEO of Taylorville Memorial Hospital says there is a need for nurses here in Taylorville and nationwide.

The Carolyn M. Butterflied Trust Nursing Scholarship awards $1,000 to a student who has finished one year in a nursing program and must be applied to by February 15th.

The John H. Butterflied Agriscience and Nutrition Scholarship awards $1,000 to an agriscience or nutrition major who has completed one year or is enrolled in one of those fields. This scholarship must also be applied to by February 15th.
Two $2,500 scholarships are awarded to Taylorville High School students who are enrolled in any healthcare field and are designated to seniors only. This application deadline is April 1st.

While all of these scholarship opportunities are in remembrance or legacy of community members, the Katie McCarty Nursing Excellence CNA Scholarship remembers and continues the name of Katie by awarding funds that can cover books, tuition, and fees.

Pam Roseberry established the Katie McCarty Scholarship and speaks on the extra miles Katie would go to prove herself as a professional in the field at a young age.


Applications for the Katie McCarty Scholarship are accepted year-round.
