  1. inquiring as to when the scholarship application will be open

    • Hi Kris – We will be opening the application process on March 20th.

  2. I see the scholarship application process begins March 20th, but where can we get the application to begin working on it? I’m assuming you can start receiving them in March 20th?

  3. Do you know of any scholarships available to heart patients in California?

  4. Can my daughter apply for this even though she applied last year and was not a recipient. She will be starting second semester of college in January 2018. Thanks!
    She is under the care of Dr. Acherman, and yes a CHC patient.
