GHA awards scholarships annually to five individuals pursuing degrees in a health care related field of study. Funded by The Marjorie G. Hogan Memorial Scholarship Endowment, two ($2,000) scholarships are awarded to hospital, high school volunteers (or employees) and three ($2,500) scholarships are awarded to nurses pursuing their Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

The endowment is made available at the bequest of former GHA President, the late Glenn Hogan, in honor of his dear wife Marjorie G. Hogan. Mrs. and Mr. Hogan had a passion for developing our Georgia health care workforce and have left us a great legacy.
