The Paul Tunnell Career Climb Scholarship

Long‐term care employees, take the next step in your professional development with the Paul Tunnell Career Climb Scholarship. This annual scholarship of up to $2,500 is open to anyone currently working in the long‐term care industry with at least one year of experience. No matter what your current position, you can get assistance furthering your educational goals and your career in long‐term care, while improving the quality of care you provide to some of the most vulnerable members of our society. 

The Paul Tunnell Career Climb Scholarship is named for longtime CAHF member and Board Chair Paul Tunnell. Paul was a licensed nursing home administrator in San Francisco, where he demonstrated daily his genuine appreciation and respect for his staff and residents. His dedication to the profession of long-term care and skilled nursing showed in his sense of humor and passion for those he served and guided. It is our hope that the scholarship bearing his name will help foster new long-term care/skilled nursing professionals possessing Paul’s tremendous strength of character and empathy.
