The CMH Staff Trust Bursary application process for 2022 will soon open.
The CMH Staff Trust Fund is an employee led and funded trust. For almost 50 years it has donated to local charities and organizations that help those in need in Cambridge, North Dumfries and the Region of Waterloo. In addition to supporting local charities, this year CMH Staff Trust Fund members have developed an education bursary to help increase diversity in health care.
The Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH) Staff Trust Diversity Bursary is to assist African Canadians, Indigenous people, persons of colour, persons with disabilities and/or those identifying as LGBTQ2S+ in their pursuit of post-secondary education in a health-related discipline. The longer term goal is to create a more diverse health care workforce.
