Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund Taking Applications
Hospice of Washington County is extending the application deadline for The Frederic H. Kass III, M.D. Endowed Scholarship Fund to May 15th at 11:59 p.m. Following the closure of schools and colleges to prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the deadline extension is to allow students additional time to complete the application. Dr. Kass is one of the founders of Hospice of Washington County, Inc. (HWC) which began in 1980 and is celebrating its 40th Anniversary.
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 grateful to have been part of the beginning of this organization. The funds from the scholarship should assist those pursuing careers in healthcare. In the past, there have been deserving recipients, and we hope to continue this tradition.”
In 2020, 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.
