The Network/AOTF Scholarship is off and running!  As of 4/02, we have received $2,820 in donations. We need $30,000 before we can begin to award an annual $2000 scholarship.  AOTF’s new guidelines are to let the scholarships grow in order to increase the value of the awards.  All donations are tax deductible and will be acknowledged by myself and AOTF.
Please make checks payable to AOTF/Network Scholarship Fund and mail to:
Frank E. Gainer, MHS, OTR/L
1447 Corcoran Street, NW
Washington, D.C. 20009-3803
AOTF uses an outside investment firm to manage all scholarship monies.  The only administrative expense is a $25 fee when a scholarship is awarded to a chosen recipient.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me in the evening at:
(202) 265-0018 or email at FGainerOTR@aol.com
