An anonymous donor has provided the entire funding for a $5000 one-time scholarship for Wauseon High School graduates who are accepted / enrolled in a medical doctoral program. This scholarship may also be offered in future years through an additional donation. Most of the advertisement for our scholarships is achieved through direct announcements at our high school. Since our upcoming graduates would not meet selection criteria #2 below, we are requesting the assistance of community members to share this information with possible qualifying candidates or their families.
