Christine K. Evans Memorial Scholarship Fund
Description & Criteria
Thank you for your interest in the Christine K. Evans Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Christine K. Evans (Chris) was the wife of the International Health Services Foundation (IHSF) founder, Charles Evans. Chris played a very active role in the Foundation’s formation and development. She had a strong personal interest in supporting the education of high achieving students in developing countries who would not be able to continue their education without financial support.
Chris died on August 6, 2010 as a result of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease). The Christine K. Evans Memorial Scholarship is established by the International Health Services Foundation in her memory. Through this fund, selected applicants will receive financial support to complete either their secondary or post graduate education.
Applications to the fund will be by invitation only. Students will be invited to apply through a sponsoring organization that has been pre-approved by IHSF. The sponsoring organization may be either an internationally-based NGO or a US-based charitable organization - 501(c)3. Upon acceptance, IHSF will provide funding for the student through their sponsoring organization, which will be responsible for its distribution according to the student’s tuition and other educational needs.
Each student receiving a scholarship agrees to:
- Remain in good standing with his/her school (no disciplinary or academic probation).
- Maintain satisfactory progress with his/her grades, and report grades to his/her sponsoring organization at the close of each semester.
- Maintain a full-time class schedule according to his/her school’s guidelines.
- Immediately notify his/her sponsoring organization of any changes in financial situation or needs.
