The Molina Family Scholarship

The GHRA Molina Family Scholarship, formally the GHRA Family and Professional Development Grant, was established in 2004 in an effort to help support our members who may need assistance in funding their education. In 2005 the GHRA Board of Directors chose to broaden the eligibility to include those members who may have children or employees who need funding assistance.

Selection of the Molina Family Scholarship recipient is based on many factors with special emphasis on the individual’s character, personal merit and background. Merit is demonstrated in a variety of ways: leadership in school, civic and other extracurricular activities, academic achievement, and motivation to serve and succeed in all endeavors. The goal of the scholarship is to recognize the applicant that best demonstrates merit and character through their application.
