Founded by Dr. and Mrs. Anderson for Frederick County residents who are nontraditional students.
The Andersons established the scholarship fund because of their desire to help non-traditional students obtain post-secondary education. Through their respective places of employment, they met people who postponed their studies for a variety of reasons: starting a family, military service, career change, as well as other circumstances beyond their control. Knowing that it is sometimes difficult to start or return to school, the Andersons wanted to provide positive reinforcement and assistance for those pursuing education in the health sciences. It is their hope that those helped through the scholarships will gain the knowledge to be successful and in turn, help others.
