  • St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children
  • Penn State Hershey Medical Center
  • Lehigh Valley Hospital - Muhlenberg

 

Scholarship recipients receive up to $2,000 a year for a maximum of 4 years, as long as the student remains in good standing with the college and completes a volunteer requirement at an EPC event each year. The EPC awards up to 15 undergraduate scholarships per year.
