Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund Taking Applications

 

Applications for the 2021 Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund are now available. Dr. Kass is one of the founders of Hospice of Washington County, Inc. (HWC) which began in 1980 and has cared for our community for over 40 years.

 

To honor Dr. Kass’s tireless efforts, HWC’s Board of Directors established the Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund. This fund is designed to support students in Washington County pursuing a career in the healthcare field. The fund is made possible by individuals and organizations who have given generously to encourage these pursuits.

 

“Hospice of Washington County provides comprehensive end-of-life care for our residents and support of their loved ones,” stated Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. “I am very proud that the funds from the scholarship assist those pursuing careers in healthcare. During this unprecedented time, we see how vital healthcare education and providers are in our community. In the past, there have been deserving recipients, and we hope to continue this tradition.”

 

In 2021, three scholarships for $2,000 will be awarded. Individuals who apply must be a resident of Washington County, Maryland, who is a graduating high school senior and is accepted to an accredited college majoring in a healthcare field with a minimum GPA or 3.0; or a resident of Washington County, Maryland, who is a current student at an accredited college majoring in a healthcare field with a minimum GPA of 3.0; or an employee of HWC, or an immediate family member of an HWC employee who is a current student or accepted to an accredited college majoring in a healthcare field, with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
