Granville Health System Foundation Now Accepting Applications for 2022 Sam Perry Memorial Scholarship
12th Annual Award Recognizes Exceptional Academic Achievement In Pursuit of a Career in Health Care
The Granville Health System Foundation (GHS Foundation) today announced that it is accepting applications for its 2022 Sam Perry Memorial Scholarship Program, now in its 12th year. The deadline for submitting a completed scholarship application packet is April 29, and more information is available at www.ghsFoundation.org/scholarship.
Using established criteria, the GHS Foundation will select its 2022 Sam Perry Memorial Scholarship recipient in May 2022. A monetary award of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) will be paid toward the recipient’s tuition in August 2022, upon verification of acceptance into an approved program. This is a one-time scholarship, but individuals may reapply for as many years as they are in school.
In 2009, the Granville Health System Board of Trustees and the GHS Foundation Board of Directors established a scholarship fund in honor of Sam Perry, a physician’s assistant whose specialized medical care earned him deep respect from both patients and peers throughout his career at Granville Health System, one of North Carolina’s leading rural hospitals.
Every year, the GHS Foundation awards its Sam Perry Memorial Scholarship to a Granville County resident who has been accepted into a two-year or four-year Allied Health Program at an accredited school with the intention to pursue a career in the health care field. Examples of programs eligible for this scholarship include, but are not limited to, clinical laboratory sciences, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiological science, pharmacy, nursing (LPN, RN), dentistry and related careers, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner.
