Founded in 2017 in honor of his parents, Dr. Salemy’s scholarship is open to high school seniors in the United States with an interest in science who have been accepted to and will attend a U.S. college (either a 4-year institution or community college). The winning student will be awarded $1000 and will be notified by Dr. Salemy or a representative. The scholarship award is given approximately 60-90 days after the application deadline – in the form of a check payable to the recipient’s accepting college.
"It is my honor to offer this scholarship each year and I’m always thrilled to meet the recipients," said Dr. Salemy. "The past couple of years have been especially tough for high school students in light of the pandemic. But many of our past scholarship recipients have also worked through multiple life difficulties and tragic personal situations – always with grit, resilience, and drive that would be the envy of any practicing surgeon. So, it always gives me great joy to acknowledge these students’ dedication."
