Hospital Establishes Scholarship Plan.
—In a plan initiated by Dr. Charles L. Lowman, director of education and rehabilitation, the Orthopaedic Hospital in Los Angeles has established tuition-loan scholarships at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, for students interested in becoming physical or occupational therapists. The plan provides for three tuition scholarships a year ($772 each, per school year) over a period of five years, when, it is anticipated, the loan fund will be self sustaining. Recipients will be asked to repay the loans, probably at a 6% interest rate, following graduation, with repayment based on the following plan: 20% the first year, 30% the second, 40% the third, and 10% the fourth year.
