Allied health areas include, but are not limited to, clinical support areas such as speech therapy, respiratory therapy, lab technology, pharmacy, physical therapy and radiological technology.

Acceptance for enrollment at a school and program of study in a technical/professional field is required for the scholarship to be awarded, according to the foundation. Candidates must also apply each year for the scholarship.

The foundation is also accepting applications for the Amanda M. Dick honorary scholarship, which supports women pursuing a career in the medical field. Individuals are also required to apply annually for the scholarship.

Candidates must be female and currently accepted into medical school with primary consideration given to residents of Jackson, Jennings, Scott and Washington counties. Residents of other counties may be considered based on available funds and at the discretion of the scholarship committee, according to the foundation.

Applications for either scholarship can be obtained by visiting, or by contacting the Schneck Foundation’s development office by calling 812-524-4244. Applications for the allied health scholarship will also be available from counselors at local high schools.
