A new scholarship will help students from Grey and Bruce counties make an impact in science and medicine.

A endowed fund created with Community Foundation Grey Bruce will start providing two scholarships annually.

The Marjorie and Mac Gingrich Endowed Fund will support first year to third year post-secondary students from Grey Bruce who are studying medical sciences or related research at a recognized Canadian university. The scholarships can support a range of studies, including medical science, research, nursing, or pre-med programs.

Two scholarships of $500 will be available this year, with flexible distributions in perpetuity each year after through the earnings from the endowed fund.

Applications are being accepted for these scholarships until June 30. For more information, you can call the Community Foundation Grey Bruce office, or visit their website.

The scholarship was started by Marjorie to mark her long career in nursing and to honour her late husband, Mac. Marjorie and Mac were both raised in Bruce County and have backgrounds in education and nursing.

Marjorie created the scholarship in response to the Community Foundation Grey Bruce’s matched funding program, which matches 50┬ácents on every dollar donated up to $10,000 per fund.
