Tuition Assistance

Norton Healthcare offers several opportunities for scholarships and training to help students pursue careers in health care.

Norton Scholars Program

Get help paying for college and get on the fast track to a great health care career.

The Norton Healthcare Scholars Program is a loan forgiveness program that provides educational assistance to students pursuing or continuing a health care-related degree in a specified area of workforce need. The amount of funding received per calendar year is based on the degree program. This is a highly competitive program, and not all candidates will be accepted.

Those accepted as a Norton Healthcare Scholar sign a contract agreeing to work for Norton Healthcare upon graduation. The length and terms of this loan forgiveness commitment are based on the amount of funding received. During this commitment, the loan is eligible to be forgiven. IRS regulations require these funds to be taxed as they are forgiven. The amount of approved financial assistance is dependent on the program.
