Employee Scholarships vs Ascend Program
    • Employee scholarships: This program is generously funded by UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital Foundation donors. The scholarship award goes directly to the institution of your choice to support tuition for that program.

    • Ascend is a system-wide program offered in partnership with Guild Education; Ascend is offered in partnership with UCHealth. UCHealth will fully fund a selection of clinical certifications and foundational learning programs such as English language and college prep, as well as select degree programs in social work, behavioral health, and other areas. These programs target critical staffing areas, and supporting employees’ growth into these roles will help address the shortage of clinical healthcare workers.
