2021 Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Scholarships

The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Healthcare Scholarship was established in 2016 to recognize students who plan to pursue a career in healthcare. Kim Atkins was a beloved and respected teacher in Rockdale County for many years and was even recognized as a Teacher of the Year. During her battle with breast cancer she and her family depended on the care and compassion of many healthcare professionals.

We seek to honor Kim Atkins in her love for students and her healthcare team by awarding a $2,000 scholarship to eight deserving seniors each year. Scholarships are awarded to students from each traditional high school and career academy in Rockdale and Newton Counties.

Apply by March 26th

Applicants can apply between Monday, January 11, 2021, and Friday, March 26, 2021. Final applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, March 26, 2021.
