The Alliance has awarded 7 recipients this year with medical education scholarships! We were able to give out $8000 in scholarships this year! While we will not celebrate our recipients with our brunch in April, we’d like to give them a round of applause. There were 5 high school recipients of the Jean E. Frazer Allied Health Scholarship totalling $4,000, and
there were two recipients of the Nell Hendrix Knight Nursing Scholarship at UNCG totalling $4,000.
This scholarship was established in 1970 in honor of Mrs. Jean Embry Frazer. Mrs. Frazer served as president of The Greensboro Medical Alliance in 1972-73. She died following a long battle with cancer. This scholarship is awarded to a local high-school senior with high academic standing and personal financial need who plans to pursue a career in the health-care field.

The Scholarships Chairperson may request a personal interview. Also, in some cases, the Scholarship Committee may consult with the teacher/advisor.
The amount of the scholarship may vary from year to year.
