The Chapin Henley M.D. Scholarship Fund

Application Deadline: March 15th at 12:00pm (noon) 



This scholarship was established by Russell Henley, in honor of his father, Dr. Chapin Henley.  Russell said, “This scholarship is a tribute to my dad, Chapin Henley, who has always been an inspiration to me.  Against the odds, he worked hard and became a doctor.  He really cared about his patients, often treating people who couldn’t pay him.  He made house calls.  He went on mission trips.  And after he retired, he opened a medical clinic for uninsured working people. Through this fund, I hope to give back to others like my dad has.  I want this scholarship to help people who are trying to better themselves.”


The scholarship was created to assist individuals pursuing a post-secondary education, and who display a desire for academic achievement.  This scholarship is open to employees of Idle Hour Country Club and their dependents.
