Auxiliary Scholarships

We provide scholarships to promote healthcare careers and ensure a new generation of dedicated caregivers.

The El Camino Hospital Auxiliary and Foundation offer several scholarships to qualified applicants in our community. Depending on the type of scholarship you receive, recipients may be eligible for scholarships for up to four years. Awards can be used toward tuition, books and fees.
