The Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center Announces Annual Scholarships Available To Fairfield County High School Student Athletes.

The Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center (OSM), a division of Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists, is accepting applications for a $2,000.00 scholarship and several additional scholarships.  The scholarship is open to high school athletes planning to attend college in the Fall of 2019.

OSM is looking for exceptional high school seniors who excel in three areas: student athletic achievements, academic accomplishments, and community service.  The scholarship is open to high schools where OSM serves as team physicians: Bassick, Bunnell, Central, Fairfield Ludlowe, Fairfield Warde, Masuk, Notre Dame, St. Joseph’s, Stratford, Trumbull, and Warren Harding.

“It’s an honor to serve as team physicians for these high schools, it gives us a great sense of community and allows us to see these student athletes excel on and off the fields.  Being able to give back to our community in such a way that ties athletics and academics together brings great pride to our practice.”  – OSM Orthopaedic Surgeon Michael Redler, MD.
