Encore Physical Therapy is dedicated to the betterment of the communities in which we treat and the people that call these communities home. One aspect of this involves providing a scholarship for local high school seniors who are pursuing further education at an accredited college, university, or trade school after graduation. Encore Physical Therapy is providing four scholarships in two areas: Athletics and S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math)
Currently, high school seniors within the Greater Albany Public School District, Corvallis School District, and Philomath School District are eligible to apply.
In our inaugural year, 4 outstanding students (2 in each category) have been selected to win the scholarship awards from a large group of qualified applicants.
In year 2, starting in September 2018, Encore will be selecting one student every month in each category from each school district for a monthly recognition award. Only these selected students will be eligible for either the Encore Physical Therapy Willamette Valley Outstanding S.T.E.A.M. Student of the Year Scholarship or the Encore Physical Therapy Willamette Valley Outstanding Athlete of the Year Scholarship. Again, 2 students will be chosen for each scholarship at school year’s end.
In the Fall of 2018 we are also hoping to expand the program to involve job shadowing for students interested in a career in physical therapy and/or the medical field, presentations in the classroom, speaking to athletics groups/clubs, and any other areas where we can be of use or provide assistance.
