CORVALLIS — The application deadline for The Corvallis Clinic Foundation’s James R. Naibert, M.D., Scholarship is May 31. Two $1,000 awards are available to area students who are studying to become healthcare professionals involved in direct patient care, such as physicians, nurses, physical therapists or pharmacists.
To be eligible, applicants must have a college sophomore standing or above and either have graduated from a high school in Linn or Benton county or have lived in the mid-valley for at least three years while working in a healthcare field with direct patient care. A 3.25 post-secondary grade point average is preferred.

Patients chose to honor Dr. Naibert, a retired family physician, by establishing the scholarship in his name for area students.
“Since the initial award in 2008, $11,000 has been awarded to very bright and promising students, some now having finished their own professional training,” said Dr. Naibert, who practiced at The Clinic’s Waverly Drive office in Albany and at its Immediate Care Center. “One, for example, is a physical therapist, who is now on the application committee to determine the next awardees. It is a real honor to be part of this, and to meet the students who will be helping to take care of me in future years.”
The Corvallis Clinic Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide resources in the mid-Willamette Valley that support health education, preventive health care, and the delivery of health care to at-risk populations.
