The Knoxville Area Urban League accepts applications for the Minority Scholarship Program in honor of Walter S. E. Hardy, M.D., one of the first African-American physicians in Knoxville, in December each year.

“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 minority 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 into 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.

If you are interested in applying for the scholarship this year, click here, print, complete and submit your application by Friday, March 30th.
