Academic Outreach Awards

 

Ochsner & Jefferson Dollars for Scholars Scholarship

Jefferson Dollars for Scholars aims to expand access to educational opportunities for Jefferson Parish Public School students through scholarships and academic support. Ochsner provides the funding for an average of 10 students per year to earn one of these coveted scholarships while also providing other academic opportunities throughout the Ochsner System.                                                           

Ochsner Future Physician Awards

Since 1987, Ochsner has granted Future Physician Awards to graduating high school seniors. Typically presented during graduation or award ceremonies for graduating seniors, the award recognizes academic achievement, leadership, and an interest in the science or medical field. In addition to recognition, each student also receives a monetary scholarship.

The Ochsner Future Physician Award is on hiatus for 2013.  Please check back for more information on a more robust version of this scholarship program, launching in 2014.
