QCHF Career Climb Scholarship Program Honoring Paul Tunnell

The QCHF Scholarship Program began in 1985 as the Feingold Scholarship. Dr. Feingold gave a significant endowment in memory of his wife, Shirley.

This scholarship opportunity is intended to promote both the present and future well-being of long-term care in California. The mission of the Quality Care Health Foundation is largely based on providing educational advancement to those dedicated staff members who care for California’s long-term care residents on a daily basis and, in so doing, help those individuals achieve a higher quality of life.

QCHF and The HOME Foundation Scholarship Program

QCHF and The HOME Foundation (Ensign) have formed a scholarship program to fund individuals working in a skilled nursing facility who want to further their careers by training to be certified nursing assistants (CNA).  Applicants must remain in the long-term care field and work in a skilled nursing facility.

Details of the HOME Foundation scholarship program are as follows:

The HOME Foundation / QCHF will award Four (4) $5,000 scholarships per year for four years.

To qualify for this scholarship the individual applying for the scholarship must already be in the field and employed by a SNF, working towards their CNA, and planning on staying in the field and working in a SNF.
