CHESAPEAKE UROLOGY ASSOCIATES SCHOLARSHIP FUND Enables Students in Need to Pursue Higher Education Dreams
The Chesapeake Urology Associates Scholarship Fund has provided more than just financial assistance for area students pursuing careers in the medical field; it has helped more than two dozen students to pursue their passions and dreams since its inception in 2006.
In fact, one student was able to pursue her nursing degree and her dream of improving healthcare in low-income neighborhoods and another student, who dreams of delivering the safest and most effective anesthesia care to under-served communities, went on to pursue his doctor of nursing practice degree in a nurse anesthesia program.
“We established the Chesapeake Urology Associates Scholarship Fund in conjunction with Central Scholarship 10 years ago as a way to give back to our young people who are the future of healthcare in Maryland and in this country,” said Sanford Siegel, M.D., President and CEO of Chesapeake Urology. “By providing scholarships to students going into the medical field, we’re continuing our deep commitment to giving back to our community. It’s been amazing to see so many young men and women achieve their dreams with the help of our scholarship.”
Easing the Financial Burden Faced by Students
Since the first year of funding in 2006, the Chesapeake Urology Associates Scholarship Fund has helped 26 students afford higher education and subsequently pursue a career in the medical field. Nine students received consecutive-year awards, helping to ease the financial burden these students face.
The Chesapeake Urology Associates Scholarship Fund provides assistance to full-time students pursuing degrees in medicine, nursing and ancillary health fields. Scholarships of up to $5,000 are awarded each academic year through Central Scholarship. Recipients are selected based on demonstrated commitment to the medical field, financial needs and academic achievement.
