GSO Announces Rise Above Scholarship For High School Students

Georgia Spine & Orthopaedics is excited to provide two $1,500.00 scholarships annually to deserving high school students.  Our team has a front row seat to the injuries motor vehicle accidents can cause.  These injuries can produce a great deal of stress and anxiety for the entire family, especially children.  Our scholarships encourage students to rise above life’s challenges, and we are committed to supporting our young leaders.  Both scholarships are offered to students who have been injured or students with parents who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident.

If you are interested in participating in our scholarship program, please advise how you are serving your family, and your community.  Include your goals regarding education after high school, as well as answering the essay question below as part of the application process:
