With the belief that education is the key to a healthier future of babies, the Nathan C. Splant Foundation will sponsor an annual scholarship.  This scholarship will be awarded to one Hanover Central High School graduating senior entering college.

The Scholarship was established in honor of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduates and the healthcare professionals who work diligently towards healthy outcomes for premature born children.  It is our hope that our contribution to the future of healthcare will lead to healthier families and children and fewer infant deaths.

Each scholarship application is evaluated on academic, extracurricular, potential, and personal attributes by the Board of Directors.  The number of new scholarships granted each year is determined by the budget approved by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

The Nathan C Splant Foundation Scholarship Committee is responsible for the review of the applications and the selection of any recipients. Each application is evaluated on its own merits for academic excellence, school and community involvement, and potential for future success.

The Scholarship Program is an equal opportunity program and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex or disability. The number of new Scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the number and quality of applications received and budgetary requirements of the Foundation. The submission of an application does not guarantee that a Scholarship will be awarded, received, or continued and Hanover Central High School is not limited to or awarded a specific number of scholarships each year.

For the 2023-2024 school year, the Foundation will provide a $2,000 Scholarship to one graduating Hanover Central high school senior with the following criteria:

    • A student born a preemie (born prematurely, weighing less than 5 pounds at birth) enrolled in a qualifying program, at an accredited college or university.
    • OR a student pursuing a career in nursing, medicine or health sciences field of study including speech, occupational and physical therapy at an accredited college or university.

The applicant will be notified of the Scholarship Selection Committee's decision by May 15th, 2024.
