Nov. 08, 2012 @ 07:12 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Charleston hospital’s foundation is offering a four-year scholarship to West Liberty University through an online auction.

The Foundation for Thomas Memorial and Saint Francis Hospitals is conducting the auction through Nov. 15.

The Charleston Gazette reports the scholarship’s estimated value is $12,000. The minimum bid is $4,000.

Foundation executive director Sandy Zando says the scholarship could give a family the chance that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
