Helen Anita and William E. Evans, Jr., M.D. Scholarship Fund - Camp Scholarship

Dr. Bill, as he was affectionately known, practiced family medicine in the Greater Kansas City area all of his working life. He was ably assisted by his devoted wife (Helen) Anita for most of that time. Since Dr. Bill was a disabled veteran, he had occasion to frequent the VA hospital and held a special place in his heart for numerous employees of the hospital. His burning desire was to reward those special people who had administered to him by setting up this program to offer monetary assistance to their children. The purpose of the Fund shall be to provide scholarships to the children of employees at the Kansas City VA Medical Center who plan to attend summer camp.

Applicants eligible for assistance shall meet the following requirements:

a) Be 8 to 18 years old; and

b) Have a parent or legal guardian who currently works at the Kansas City VA Medical Center who has worked in his/her current position a minimum of 30 hours per week for at least one year.

Consideration will be given to an applicant’s financial need, extracurricular involvement and past academic performance. Scholarship assistance shall be awarded primarily to applicants who wish to use the assistance to attend a summer camp in the Greater Kansas City area, although camps outside the Kansas City area may also be considered.

Scholarship recipients are required to submit a written reflection following the completion of the camp, which describes his/her experiences and specifically details what the recipient learned from this opportunity.

Applicant information will be held confidential for use by scholarship review committee only, with the exception of applicant name and parents(s) name to verify employment eligibility.
