Minority Students Win Scholarship From RHS

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Some local minority students looking to go to school for nursing are getting some help from an area hospital.

Rockford Health System named the dozen African-American or Hispanic winners who are getting this year's minority scholarship.

Each student will get $2,000 for the upcoming school year. It's also double the amount of winners getting this money compared to last year.

Rockford Health System says the scholarship was established to diversify the health care workforce. The winners do not have to work for the hospital.
