The George W. Knox, M.D. Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Knox, a neurologist who practiced at The Corvallis Clinic from 1970 to 1998. Through this endowment, a $750 scholarship is awarded each year to a Corvallis High School or a Crescent Valley High School student who expresses an interest in entering a health-related career field or the humanities. Eligibility alternates each year between the two schools. Depending on the eligibility year, the deadline and application information is available through the Beyond CHS or the Beyond CV office. In 2021, students from Crescent Valley School are eligible.
