Physicians' scholarships, grants up for grabs

Caretakers of the Clallam County Physicians Community Benefit fund are accepting applications for both academic scholarships in medically-related fields and medically-related community grants, both to be awarded in 2009.

The goal of the academic scholarships is to provide tuition support for students in medical fields. To be eligible, a student must be a graduate of a Clallam County high school and have been accepted into (or currently be enrolled in and making satisfactory progress in) a fully-accredited, professional school in a medically-related program.

The goal of community grants is to encourage one-time, medically-related community projects that benefit a broad cross-section of the community.

Applications for both scholarships and grants may be obtained by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: The Clallam County Physicians Community Benefit fund, P.O. Box 3005, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Completed applications are due by June 1.
