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.
