Education: Cabarrus Family Medicine offers scholarships

As a contribution to local schools and the community, Cabarrus Family Medicine is offering a $1,000 scholarship to one exemplary graduating senior from each of the 11 area high schools including A.L. Brown High School, Central Cabarrus High School, Concord High School, Hickory Ridge High School, Jay M. Robinson High School, Mallard Creek High School, Mount Pleasant High School, North Rowan High School, North Stanly High School, Northwest Cabarrus High School and West Stanly High School.
This is the fifth year of the program. According to Dr. Allen Dobson, CFM president and vice president of clinic development for Carolinas HealthCare System, Cabarrus Family Medicine began the program “to invest in our community’s future leaders and volunteers.”
The $1,000 scholarship is both academically and community-service based. Each scholarship will be awarded to a student with a minimum 3.5 GPA who wishes to attend a 4-year higher learning institution in North Carolina.
According to Dr. Dobson, “We are not looking for someone who necessarily wants to go into the medical field, but we are looking for someone who is interested in improving the lives of others.”
To apply, students must submit an application from their school’s guidance counselor and several letters of recommendation. They also must write an essay describing why he or she is the person Dobson described in his statement.
The scholarship is renewable for one year, provided the student continues to be academically successful and community-service oriented.
In addition to the CFM Scholarship, Cabarrus Family Medicine has recently begun a Sports Medicine and Injury Center College Scholarship.
This scholarship was created to support students interested in a career in medicine with preference given to those wishing to pursue athletic training or other sports medicine related fields. The $500 one-year, renewable scholarship will be awarded annually to two recipients who are graduates of a Cabarrus County or Kannapolis City High School. The scholarship based on academic achievement, and on demonstrated involvement in a sports medicine or medically related field. Students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA and be accepted to attend a four-year higher learning institution
Completed application packets must be mailed directly to Cabarrus Family Medicine and postmarked no later than May 1. The mailing address is Cabarrus Family Medicine, Attn: Jannette Kluttz, 270 Copperfield Blvd., Suite 201, Concord, NC 28025. A preaddressed envelope is included in each packet.
