The Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Jr. Scholarship was established to provide up to two students from each graduating class of the Ensworth School in Nashville, Tennessee scholarships that include up to half tuition at Washington University.
The scholarship is renewable for up to four years as long as the recipient is making progress toward a degree.
Once enrolled at Washington University, each Frist Scholar may apply through The Career Center for a $5,000 stipend (each summer) to fund summer opportunities, such as internships or similar experiences, for the summers after their first, sophomore, and junior years.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and leadership in school and community activities.
To be considered, Ensworth School seniors should apply for admission to Washington University. No separate application for the Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Jr. Scholarship is required.
Dr. Frist, a co-founder of Hospital Corporation of America (today known simply as HCA, Inc.), received his medical degree from Washington University in 1965. Education has always been especially important to Dr. Frist and his family. It is his hope that this scholarship will serve as further encouragement for students at the Ensworth School to attend Washington University, widely considered one of America’s leading teaching and research universities.
