The family and friends of Dr. Donald Harting recently established the Donald A. Harting Memorial Scholarship at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore to honor his life and legacy. The scholarship will provide a minimum of $2,000 per academic year to support students seeking a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), or Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree.
Dr. Harting was grateful for the financial support he received from his local community to pursue his education in pediatric medicine and public health. He was the driving force behind the creation of the Delmarva Education Foundation and its endowed fund, which now provides funds annually for scholarships and programs for local students.
Qualified applicants must be graduates of a public or private high school located in Dorchester, Wicomico, Worcester, or Somerset County, Maryland, and admitted to an accredited graduate program leading to a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), or Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree as a full-time student. All scholarship guidelines and application forms can be found by visiting the Community Foundation’s website at www.cfes.org.
