Applications for the annual Christina Skoski, MD, Scholarship are being accepted until April 9, a recent Amputee Coalition news release reports. The news release notes that the fund is designed to award a one-time $1,000 scholarship to a student with congenital limb difference or limb loss with a desire to learn and potential for success. The Amputee Coalition adds that the scholarship is open exclusively to undergraduate students who will be enrolled or are currently attending a 4-year college.
Students also must reportedly have a grade-point average of 3.5 and a minimum ACT score of 30 or SAT score of 1340. A letter of recommendation from a high school adviser must also be submitted, the Amputee Coalition says, and the student, or his or her parent/legal guardian, must be a registered friend of the Amputee Coalition.
Applications, the news release adds, must be submitted via online submission through the Amputee Coalition Web site at amputee-coalition.org/scholarship/skoski. Recipients will be announced no later than June 11.
The Amputee Coalition explains that the fund was initially endowed with a $25,000 gift from Christina Skoski, MD, friend and member of the Amputee Coalition’s Science and Medical Advisory Committee.
