Kelowna school offers scholarship for military family members

CanScribe Career College to provide two $1,500 scholarships in the Online Medical Transcription Program.

CanScribe Career College announces that they have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Canadian Forces Personnel and Family Support Services to offer two  $1,500 scholarships for its Online Medical Transcription Program.

This initiative is an important part of CanScribe’s mission statement to help people achieve their goals and give back to the community. Helping Canadian Military Families meets these objectives. In addition to the scholarships, CanScribe is offering a free Dictation Upgrade (a $250 value) to all other military family members who enroll in the medical transcription program.

“We are so excited to offer these scholarships and free upgrades to our military families”, stated Colleen Gaudet, president and CEO of CanScribe Career College.

“We believe our medical transcription program is a perfect fit as both the online training and employment opportunities are portable, and our graduates have the opportunity to work from home for a variety of different employers.”

Applicants interested in applying for the scholarships can submit a one to two page essay describing their personal motivation for applying, including background information, how this career choice will impact their life, their plan of action to complete the course and future aspirations. The two scholarships will be awarded by Dec. 31, 2012. All other military family members can request the free upgrade upon enrolment.

“On behalf of the Canadian Forces Military Families I would like to thank CanScribe Career College for their generous scholarship offer,” said Brigadier-General Fred Bigelow, director general personnel and family support services. “This online distance learning opportunity will benefit our military family members, where ever they are located and help overcome some of the barriers to employment that some of our families face as they transit from one location to another during their careers.”

Located in Kelowna, CanScribe Career College offers an internationally recognized online medical transcription program and Microsoft computer courses.
