The Ivy B. Horr Medical Education Loan Fund is now accepting applications for 2012. Loans up to $10,000 are available to students who attended high school in Shasta, Lassen, Tehama, Modoc, Trinity, or Siskiyou counties. The deadline is March 30, 2012. To be eligible for this scholarship the student must be engaged in the study of medicine or in medical training at a college or university.
Ivy Buchler Horr was a resident of Glenburn near Fall River Mills from 1930 to her death in 1982. Ivy lost a battle with cancer, but her legacy remains through the Ivy B. Horr Medical Education Fund.
Ivy created a trust before she passed through which low interest loans are awarded to students from Shasta, Lassen, Trinity, Tehama, Modoc & Siskiyou Counties pursuing an education in medicine. The trust, which had been held at Shasta College, was transferred to the Community Foundation for permanent administration. To date over 150 people have benefited from the generosity of Ivy B. Horr, with many more to benefit in the future.
