The Dr. Ann Eady Aspiring Professional Memorial Scholarship is being created to honor Dr. Ann’s life and her dedication to educate the underserved adult-learner in the field of allied healthcare. This is a need-based scholarship, established to provide an opportunity to the non-traditional learner, 25 years or older. Applicants must have a high school diploma/GED, demonstrate financial need, and enroll in a Certificate level program at The College of Health Care Professions (CHCP), an ABHES accredited allied healthcare college. The scholarship intends to cover the remaining tuition costs after grants, to minimize the financial burden of attending college.
The College of Health Care Professions is partnered with the Longaker Foundation to fund the Dr. Ann Eady scholarship. The Longaker Foundation was established in April 2001 as a Sec. 501(c)(3) private foundation. The foundation’s mission is to provide educational funding to schools and other qualified educational programs. Over the years, the Foundation has provided funding to Chinquapin Prep School, First Tee, Child Advocates and other children-focused educational programs.

Dr. Ann Eady was our Senior Vice President of Academics who passed away in July of 2020. She was nationally recognized for her innovative work in the design and delivery of an education model for adult learners with complicated lives. This flexible, stackable education model has made a difference for thousands of aspiring professionals from disadvantaged communities. She was a great ICARE partner and a valuable member of our team since 2012. Her energetic spirit, creativity, and passion for education will truly be missed. She will not only be remembered by her family, friends, and associates, but the thousands of aspiring health care professionals she touched during her time at CHCP.
