The Castro Valley Educational Foundation is inviting CVHS seniors to apply for the $20,000 Dr. Mary Jane Stamm Scholarship as well as many other available scholarships this year. Applications are due by April 1.

 

The Stamm Scholarship was established by Dr. Mary Jane Stamm, Castro Valley’s first woman doctor and the first woman OB/Gyn on staff at Eden Hospital when it opened its doors back in 1954.

 

During her many years of practice, she delivered thousands of babies at the hospital and was a vital part of the community. A philanthropist as well as a physician, Dr Stamm quietly contributed to many Castro Valley organizations and causes in her lifetime.

 

Stamm passed away in February of 2007 at age 91, but her legacy continues through this large, annual scholarship. To date, the Stamm scholarships have distributed more than  $470,000 to local students.

 

 

Seniors who would like to apply for the Stamm or any of the other scholarships can call 510-397-4095 or visit www.cvef.org for more info and an application.
