Each year, the Ascension Medical Group Scholarship team offers awards for academic study to eligible Ascension NE Wisconsin employees or employee children (Calumet Hospital, Mercy Hospital, St. Elizabeth Hospital and Ascension Medical Group Clinics) from area high schools (public, private, or home-schooled) who have demonstrated excellence in scholastic achievement, high moral character and a stated interest in human health service careers. In conjunction with Ascension NE Wisconsin's mission, vision and values, special consideration will be given to those students in need.

Applications must be received by midnight on April 9, 2021. The review team will select recipients by May 1st. The awards will be made at high school graduation or award ceremonies. If you have questions, please contact Jennifer Van Abel at Jennifer.Vanabel@ascension.org.
Dr. C. Christopher Wallace Endowment Fund
In his honor, the Dr. C. Christopher Wallace Physician Fund was established in 1995 through a generous gift from Network Health System. The fund supports costs associated with Ascension physicians, Physician Assistants (PA) and Nurse Practitioners (NP) traveling to third-world countries on medical missions or to attend retreats which enable the physician to reflect upon their feelings on why they chose to go into the medical healing field.
Grant applications need to be postmarked or received by November 1 of each year.
Wallace Physician’s Endowment grants were awarded to the following Ascension employees for participating in medical mission trips in 2020:
Dr. Matt Kraemer, Elias Pina, Dominican Republic
Lori Lang, Elias Pina, Dominican Republic
Sandra Schaffer, Elias Pina, Dominican Republic
Flanagan Family Fund

Available funding will vary from year to year and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until allocation has been depleted.
