The Clallam County Physicians Community Benefit Fund is now accepting applications for both academic scholarships in medically related fields and medically related community grants.

The scholarships and grants will be awarded in 2021-2022.

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 the Clallam County Physicians Community Benefit Fund, P . O. Box 3005, Port Angeles, Washington 98362.

Applications may also be requested by email at [email protected] .com. Completed applications for scholarships and grants must be submitted by Friday, June 25, 2021.
