Funds available for Clatsop Community College students

CMH is offering scholarships that will pay for tuition and books to attend the medical assistant training program at Clatsop Community College (CCC) in the 2023-24 academic year.

CMH’s goal with the scholarships is to assist in pursuing a Medical Assistant certificate (MA). Though receipt of scholarship does not guarantee employment at CMH, the intent will be to offer the opportunity to apply for available positions and interview all scholarship recipients.

Ten scholarships will be offered on basis of a completed application and interview. Applications are due Aug. 1, 2023.

Once certified, the MA must apply for a position using the CMH application process to be considered for an MA position.

CMH will pay all tuition, fees and required book and material costs for the program. To qualify, applicants must:

  1. Successfully complete the program in the 9-month, full-time student allotment;
  2. Be accepted to a full- or part-time MA position at CMH;
  3. Complete and obtain satisfactory results for pre-employment drug screening, criminal background check, applicable license verification, and reference checks; and
  4. Maintain employment with CMH for one year without resignation or termination.

Scholarships are awarded and designated by a CMH review committee. Recipients will only be eligible to receive the scholarship once.

Scholarship recipients who are hired at CMH and resign or are terminated for cause within 12 months of their start date at CMH will be required to repay the scholarship to CMH.

The scholarship application is available here. These scholarships will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until all spots are full. Email applications to For questions, please call HR at 503.338.4073.
