Heartland Foundation is now accepting applications for the Lowell C. Kruse Healthy Choices. Healthy Lives. Scholarship.

The Kruse Scholarship provides financial assistance to a first-year, full-time graduate student studying in areas leading to improved quality of life for the residents of the Mosaic Life Care service region. This includes careers in health care administration, early childhood development, not-for-profit management and educational leadership.

The Lowell C. Kruse Scholarship of $10,000 will be awarded annually. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is June 15, 2019.

Lowell C. Kruse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Heartland Health from 1984 to 2009, is well-known regionally and nationally for his commitment to quality and passion for improving the quality of life within the region. Kruse successfully led the merger of two community hospitals into a regional medical center nationally recognized for quality. Heartland Health is now known as Mosaic Life Care.

Kruse continues to champion initiatives to advocate for higher levels of education that improve the health and well-being of communities. To honor his leadership and commitment to excellence, the Lowell C. Kruse scholarship was established by Heartland Health and is managed by Heartland Foundation.
