What We Do
Supporting education through scholarships, SHEF is committed to growing the number of healthcare workers who live and work in Southside Virginia. Our service region includes the tri-cties of Petersburg, Hopewell and Colonial Heights and the counties of Dinwiddie, Prince George, Sussex and southeastern Chesterfield.
When residents from our region find great, well-paying jobs in our own backyard, they stay here, raise families here and build their lives here. Scholarship applications are accepted from individuals affiliated with the region as a resident, healthcare employee or student.
It takes commitment to ensure the Southside community benefits from top-notch healthcare, cutting-edge research and caring, qualified health professionals. SHEF believes this vision can easily be reality – if we support the talented students who live and work here.
Support from SHEF may take the form of an award, scholarship or forgivable loan. Individuals must be part of the following jurisdictions: Chesterfield, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie, Hopewell, Petersburg, Prince George or Sussex County.
