Roger and Lois Samuelson Family Scholarship Created for Healthcare Students through RiverView Foundation

Community news | Monday, October 24, 2022

The RiverView Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the Roger and Lois Samuelson Family Healthcare Scholarship. The scholarship is for Crookston, Climax, or Fisher high school graduates enrolled or with the intention to enroll in a post-secondary program in a healthcare field.

Roger and the late Lois Samuelson have been life-long farmers in the Crookston area. They have one daughter and one granddaughter. Sadly, Lois passed away in September 2021. Over the years, she was very involved in the family farm, the South Lowell Homemakers, and bowling leagues. She was also a member of the American Legion and VFW Lady’s Auxiliary.

It’s because of the excellent care Lois received as a patient at RiverView Health and as a resident at the Benedictine Living Center that Roger decided to create the scholarship.

“We would like to help students pursue a career in healthcare,’’ he shared. “…We believe some students need a little help to further their education.’’

The first $1,500 scholarship will be awarded for the 2023 Spring semester. Applications are due at noon, November 21, 2022.

Scholarship guidelines and applications can be found here, by stopping at the Foundation Office, or by contacting Foundation Director Randy Schoenborn at 218.281.9249 or
