Emma Jean Ridley was a kind person, who always supported her family and friends as they pursued their passions.

She gave encouragement to those earning their upper level education and always offered support to those in need. Her words of encouragement helped give those around her a boost of confidence that helped them achieve all they were capable of. The Emma Jean Ridley Memorial Scholarship will support African American undergraduate students who are earning a degree in an allied health profession, helping them reach their potential and continue to grow.

African American undergraduates are eligible to apply if they are first-generation college students who come from low-income families and have a 3.0 GPA. Students must be pursuing a career in a healthcare field to apply. In your application, write about how you plan to make a difference through your chosen career and how your personal journey has guided your choice to work in the medical field.
