Hoag Classic & Kingston Technology Scholarship Fund

As part of the continued partnership to help further the education of students, the Hoag Classic partnered with Kingston Technology to fund $70,000 in scholarships.

Funded completely by philanthropy, the Hoag Employee Education Scholarship Program provides scholarships up to $5,000 for non-nursing employees who are actively pursuing education to advance their careers at Hoag. Thanks to the generosity and vision of Kingston Technology, Hoag employees are advancing their education and elevating the level of care Hoag provides to our community.

During the 2022 Hoag Classic, the Hoag Hospital Foundation and Kingston Technology hosted a special awards breakfast where 2020 and 2022 recipients and their families were in attendance to celebrate their accomplishments and awards.

If you would like to support the Hoag Employee Scholarship Program, please contact Adam Gafke, executive director development operations, Hoag Hospital Foundation at (949) 764-1986 or Adam.Gafke@hoag.org.

Please read on to meet the Hoag Classic scholarship recipients who are benefiting from Kingston Technology’s generosity and dedication to education.
