In recognition of the time and efforts Thomas C. Lenertz provided to the establishment and advancement of the RiverView Foundation, its Board of Directors established the Lenertz Family Healthcare Scholarship. As one of RiverView Foundation's original founders in 1990, Mr. Lenertz was instrumental in all development stages of the RiverView Foundation. As Riverview Healthcare Association CEO, he continued to serve the Foundation as an ex-officio member of the Board of Directors until his December, 2000 retirement.
Scholarship is restricted to residents of RiverView Healthcare Association's service area that includes Crookston and other communities within a 30 mile radius of the RiverView Health hospital.
Applicant must be enrolled, or give intention to enroll, in a post secondary healthcare field of study at a certified post secondary or higher institution.
Priority will be given to applicants pursuing a degree in healthcare management.
A stipend of $500 will be awarded to each year's scholarship recipient. The check will be mailed directly to the institution of the recipient's choice. The recipient will receive the stipend through the financial aide office of that institution. It is to be applied toward the cost of tuition or related educational expenses.
