GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP/FOX 17) — Grand Rapids Community College has established a $7 million scholarship fund with Spectrum Health to help students pursuing careers in healthcare or the health sciences.

Spectrum Health is buying  the college’s athletic field near Butterworth Hospital for $5 million. This purchase has led to the scholarship fund, which will be established at the Spectrum Health Foundation.

Five percent, or $350,000, would be provided to the Grand Rapids Community College Community Foundation annually for scholarships. Awards will be based on the recipients’ need.

Grand Rapids Community College President Steven Ender says in a press release that “providing affordable educational opportunities for students is paramount to ensuring the continued growth and success of our region.”
