The Foundation awards about $5.5 million each year in scholarships. Meredith Peck of Plymouth wrote recently to let us know how she is doing. We love hearing from scholarship recipients!
Dear New Hampshire Charitable Foundation,
I am writing to give you an update on my time in medical school. Along with a full load of challenging but exciting classes, I have had the privilege to participate in a number of other activities. I have volunteered at two health fairs providing basic care to the underserved community in Harlem. It was rewarding to make the people living by our school feel cared for. In early November, I attended the annual Physicians for Human Rights conference at Dartmouth, which was both an inspiring event and a much needed break from city life. After a slew of difficult final exams, I travelled to Lake Placid to complete a Wilderness First Responder Certification course. It was an incredibly interesting program where I was able to apply my newly acquired medical knowledge to high-risk situations.
Thank you for all of your support. I would not have been able to learn and discover the things I have this past semester without the extra financial help from your Foundation.
