Fairview Clinical Laboratory Scientist Sponsorship Program
Fairview’s sponsorship programs are intended to fill critical vacancies within Fairview. If we don't anticipate vacancies to occur at the completion of the program, we can't offer the sponsorships. Any Fairview hospital that has open positions at the time the program is completed will hire graduates of the program.
Specific information about Fairview's Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program including application information, can be found on the program's webpage.
- Must be enrolled in the Fairview Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program.
- May be invited to apply for this sponsorship after they have completed several months of coursework and have begun clinical rotations.
- Must be willing to accept a full-time Clinical Laboratory Scientist position at Fairview within two months of graduation and commit to that position for two years.
Students are selected for the sponsorship based on an application and interview process.
The Clinical Laboratory Sponsorship is $7,500 and is a stipend paid directly to the student.
Note: The sponsorship is considered a “loan” by the IRS and accrues simple interest at 6 percent. The loan and interest are considered “forgiven” after the work commitment is completed, and do not need to be paid back. However, at that point, according to IRS guidelines, both the loan and interest become taxable income and are taxed at the supplemental rate of 38.9 percent.
