The Snohomish County Medical Society trustees have created a scholarship/grant for residents in Snohomish county. SCMS will award a scholarship recipient up to $2,500.00 to go towards a residents community project.
The guidelines for the scholarship and grant are that the resident be in good standing within their program and a SCMS resident member. The essay portion of the scholarship asks each resident “Why they chose to be a physician” and then explain their residency community project. The grant is for up to $2,500.00 and can be submitted until December 31, 2024.
Past recipient – Dr. Kirstin Hansen of Sea Mar for her Walk with a Doc Community Project.
