Gorgas Scholarship Competition and Alabama Science Scholar Search 2013 - 2014

Gorgas Scholars compete for over $10,000 in Scholarships and most Alabama Colleges and Universities offer additional scholarships.

 The Gorgas Scholarship Program is named for General William Crawford Gorgas, the Alabama physician who conquered yellow fever in the Panama Canal Zone and later became the Surgeon General of the United States Army. The purposes of the Gorgas competition are to promote interest in science and to aid in the education of promising students.

 The Alabama Science Scholar Search and Gorgas Scholarship Competition is a program of the Alabama Academy of Science and the Alabama Power Foundation. For information, contact Dr. Buckner, Chair, at ebuckner@usouthal.edu or (251) 445-9449
