The Griffiths Family Scholarship for Health Sciences was established in 2013 through the generosity of Mr. Harold Griffiths and his children, alumni of Eden Prairie High School.
Strongest consideration will be given to students who can demonstrate their interest in a career in the health science field. Relevant coursework, activities, community service and employment are considered. While applicants should be all-around citizens, GPA is not the crucial factor for selection.
