PORT ANGELES — 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 2019.
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.
Complete applications for scholarships and grants must be submitted by Sunday.
