Scholarship program at Miami University in memory of Dr. Parke G. and Dorothy M. Smith.
The Parke G. & Dorothy M. Smith Charitable Fund of the Cambridge Charitable Foundation has set up a scholarship program at Miami University in memory of Dr. Parke G. and Dorothy M. Smith to benefit students majoring in Chemistry, Zoology, and/or Micro-biology and that plan on entering medical school. Trustees give first consideration to students from Southwest Ohio and in consultation with the Office of Financial Aid look at prior academic performance, performance on tests designed to measure ability and aptitude for college work, and recommendations from Department Chairs in selecting scholarship recipients. Approximately six to eight scholarships are awarded a year.
Miami University was Dr. Smith’s alma mater and this scholarship program is his and his wife’s legacy for future generations of pre-med students.
