Clallam County physicians offer grants, scholarships

Clallam County Physicians Community Benefit Fund is accepting applications for academic scholarships in medically-related fields and medically-related community grants to be awarded in 2020-2021.

The benefit fund was formed in 1995 when Regence BlueShield joined with Clallam County Physicians Service, Inc., a company formed by local physicians to provide health care coverage to Clallam County citizens.

The goal of the academic scholarship program is to provide tuition support for students in medically-related fields.

To be eligible, a student must be a graduate of a Clallam County high school and have been accepted into or be currently enrolled and making satisfactory progress in a fully-accredited professional school in a medically-related program.

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

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

Applications may also be requested by email at walklingtrust@gmail.com.

Complete applications for scholarships and grants must be submitted by June 5, 2020.
