Dr. Clarence Flanigan, Jr. was a dual-licensed physician who spent his career attending to the underserved in both Georgia and South Carolina.
Healthcare continues to be unequally dispersed, as many underserved groups have limited access to medical care. Low-income populations or communities, racial minorities, and those living in small towns often have less access to healthcare due to financial cost, discrimination in the field, and isolated locations.
This scholarship seeks to honor the legacy of Dr. Clarence Flanigan Jr. by supporting students from humble beginnings who are pursuing higher education.
Any African American, male undergraduate student at an HBCU may apply for this scholarship, but applicants from small towns who want to work in medicine and are majoring in biology or chemistry are preferred.
