The Cedars Certified Medication Aide Scholarship

    Thank you for your interest our CMA Scholarship program! We are able to provide these scholarships through a very generous trust established by a former Cedars resident. During a hospital stay, this fiercely independent man found that he needed help from others to take care of his basic needs. He was so impressed by the generosity and compassion shown by a CNA, he was determined to provide the financial support to at least 1000 caring people to earn the CNA or CMA certification. His intent for these scholarships is to equip the recipients with the skills needed to secure viable employment through a career in healthcare while also benefitting the people CNA’s and CMA’s serve.

    The completion of the CNA certification and your interest in the CMA scholarship shows your desire to continue to grow in the healthcare field. The next step is to complete the attached Application for the CMA Scholarship, obtain 2 professional references with written recommendations and prepare a written essay. Your essay should be no more than one page and answer these two questions:

    •  What impact do you plan to have on those you will serve in a CMA role?
    • How will earning the CMA certificate impact you personally?

    Your essay can be typed or handwritten. Please do not worry so much about spelling, grammar or sentence structure; we are much more interested in what is in your heart!

    Please return your completed application, recommendations and essay Kim Roark, Director of Human Resources. You can mail, scan and email or fax.
