The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) has awarded Clemson University and the University of South Carolina (USC) individual grants in the amount of $25,000 to support the development of a high-quality healthcare workforce. The nursing schools were also offered the potential for two additional years of funding which will be determined based on an annual review.

Clemson’s School of Nursing received a grant of $25,000 from SCHA’s Indigo Enrichment Scholarship for its partnership with the Greenville Health System. The university plans to use the funds to help create interprofessional opportunities in the clinical learning environment.The $25,000 granted to USC went to the health services policy and management department of the Arnold School of Public Health. USC will use the funds to support students in the Master of Health Administration program.

Clemson School of Nursing Director Kathleen Valentine tells, “We’re grateful for the South Carolina Hospital Association’s support of our efforts to ensure that our graduates are well prepared to work at the top of their license as a registered nurse. Through these funds, students will have increased access to experts in the fields of interprofessional teamwork, continuum of care, population health and community health.”

USC Master of Health Administration program director Bankole Olatosi says, “The SCHA scholarship will help the MHA program as it prepares students for positions to advance the provision of effective, efficient and equitable health services in South Carolina. Our students will benefit from the increased access to professional education available through conferences, meetings, and training to complement their education.”

The South Carolina Hospital Association is the leadership organization and principal advocate for the state’s hospitals and healthcare systems. The scholarship program is funded by SCHA Solutions, a division of the hospital association that partners with endorsed companies that provide workforce and operational services to state hospitals and health systems.
