A scholarship will be awarded from the Dr. Donald M. Ramsey Family Scholarship Fund to a pre-health professional student at Western Carolina University. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to Western Carolina University students who are residents of North Carolina and have declared a major in a pre-professional program of study related to the field of health care.
The scholarship will pay approximately $2000 toward in-state tuition at Western Carolina University for the academic year following the spring term in which it is awarded. A recipient who continues as a student at Western Carolina University is eligible to apply for renewal of the scholarship for a second year.
Selection of the scholarship recipient is based on academic achievement, participation in various school activities, and overall social and civic contributions. The recipient must be a junior or senior during the academic year the scholarship is implemented.
