The Olson-Anderson Owatonna Clinic Scholarship Program was established by the physicians of Owatonna Clinic in 1997 to make healthcare education more accessible to the people of Owatonna and the surrounding area. The program was named to honor Dr. A.J. Olson and Dr. Frank Anderson, founders of Owatonna Clinic and active in patient care from 1948 to 1987. The Olson-Anderson Owatonna Clinic Scholarships are awarded to individuals from Steele County, Minnesota, who plan to enroll in eligible medical education programs.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

All applicants will be notified in late July.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Olson-Anderson Owatonna Clinic Foundation. Payment is made in early September.
