Scholarships

Allison Scholarship Fund

The Allison Scholarship Fund was created through a gift of Board member, Reverend Ron Allison. His generosity as well as financial support from friends of Heart Care International has helped establish scholarships for the training of nurses and doctors in the U.S. and other sites with experienced heart training programs.
