Knoxville Area Urban League Minority Scholarship Program:
In honor of Walter Hardy, M.D.
The Knoxville Area Urban League accepts applications each year in January for the Minority Scholarship Program in honor of Walter S. E. Hardy, M.D., one of the first African-American physicians in Knoxville.
“This scholarship program honors the legacy of Dr. Walter S. E. Hardy and encourages minority students to follow his example by serving this community through careers in health and wellness,” said President and CEO Phyllis Y. Nichols. “It is encouraging to see the strong field of candidates who apply for the scholarships each year.”
The Urban League grants scholarships, starting at $1,000, to area college students who are pursuing degrees in health professions. To be eligible for the award, students must live in Knox, Anderson or Blount counties and be a full-time undergraduate student already accepted in a health-related degree program at an accredited college or university. College students in pursuit of a post-graduate degree are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Applications for this year were due by Friday, January 30, 2015.
Awardees will be notifed on February 10th and will be honored at our 2015 Annual Meeting Lunch on February 18th. If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, please visit us in December 2015 for information.
