Chapin Henley M.D. Scholarship Fund

Deadline: March 15th


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.
