Orthopedic Practice Announces Scholarship Opportunity

Posted on March 23, 2011 By

The orthopedic surgeons at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI) of Freehold, Monroe, and Wall townships have announced that they will be awarding two (2) $1000.00 scholarships, one to one male and one to a female senior attending a high school in the Freehold Regional School District.

Seniors attending Colts Neck High School, Freehold High School, Freehold Township High School, Howell High School, Manalapan High School, and Marlboro High School who have an interest in pursuing a career in health care and who have maintained a “B” or higher average are eligible to submit a scholarship application, which can be obtained in the guidance department at each school.

Dr. Gregg Berkowitz, an orthopedic surgeon at AOSMI, said, “This scholarship is intended to encourage young people who are interested in any aspect of the health care field. In our practice, we are concerned about the projected shortage of health care providers in the United States, and we thought this scholarship might be a nice way to support students who are interested in the field of health care.”

Students should submit a completed scholarship application and a 500- to 700-word essay expressing their interests in the health care field to their respective guidance departments by April 29. ASOMI will select the recipients and present them with a check at the annual year-end awards banquet.
