ER Specialists Urgency Center in Colorado Springs is dedicated to providing Colorado Springs residents a low-price, high-quality alternative to traditional Emergency Room medicine.
Our doctors at ER Specialists have a special dedication to the practice of medicine, and specifically emergency medicine. We’re always seeking hard-working students who are considering making the practice of medicine, applied sciences, or healthcare policy a career.
Aspiring to spread awareness and encourage educational development, we are opening our annual ER Specialists Urgency Center scholarship program to creative minds who share the same passion with us.
If you think you have what it takes to win our scholarship, we highly encourage you to give it a try.
How Does It Work?
We want you to write an essay that’s 1,000 to 2,000 words long about any topic in the healthcare industry. But we don’t want just any essay.
Your essay should emphasize some specific aspect of medical care, medical technology, or policy and must be original in concept and execution. Most of all, we’re looking for your words and your personality.
Other criteria in assessing your entry:
- Relevant Topic
- Good Grammar
How Can You Qualify?
We welcome students from Colorado high schools, universities, and colleges. If you are less than 18 years old, or if you’re still in high school, make sure to get the consent of your parents or legal guardians first before submitting your essay.
Having a strong passion for medicine is a major plus factor as we will be choosing a scholar who believes in the same vision and values as our doctors here at ER Specialists Urgency Center.
When submitting, please don’t forget to include these details:
- Complete name with address and phone number
- Name of your school
- Any proof of being a student
So, What’s In It For You?
Good thing you asked!
We will pick a winner by December 15, 2018. If you are chosen as a scholarship recipient, a $1,000 check will be ready for you to pick up in our Urgency Center by December 20, 2018. If there are multiple deserving students we may split the award amount.
You can spend your award money any way you want but we hope you will put it towards your education.
