SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Christa Clark, MD, FACS, of Granite Bay is excited to announce the first year of her annual S.P.R.O.W.T (Supporting & Promoting Real Opportunities for Women to Thrive) Scholarship. This scholarship was designed to support and empower California women who are following a non-traditional educational path as they pursue higher education.
"Education is so important, but it is easy for us to forget that many women don't have the means to get the training they desire," says Dr. Clark. "It can be incredibly difficult to go back to school or juggle night classes with a full-time job and kids at home. It is my hope that this scholarship can help ease the financial burden of continuing education for these women."
All non-traditional, female students who live and plan to attend school in California are welcome to apply for the $5,000 scholarship via Dr. Clark's website starting March 8th, 2017. The award money may be used toward tuition and education expenses, including things like textbooks and supplies, any required technology, on-campus expenses, and transportation costs.
"Not every student follows a traditional educational path, and we should be welcoming of this diversity in academia," Dr. Clark explains. "I welcome any woman who has delayed enrollment, works full-time, has dependents, is a single parent, intends to enroll part-time, or who does not have a high school diploma to submit their application."
All submitted applications will be reviewed by the S.P.R.O.W.T scholarship committee, who will then choose the award recipient based on adherence to guidelines and the quality of the submitted application. The recipient of the scholarship will receive the award via a cash prize disbursed directly to the student.
"I wish all of our hopefuls the very best of luck," states Dr. Clark. "I am so grateful for this opportunity to help women and cannot wait to get started!"
