Dr. Shahram Salemy has announced that submissions are open for the annual Mahin and Saifulla Salemy High School Scientific Scholarship award.
Dr. Salemy is a Seattle-based plastic surgeon, specializing in plastic surgery of the face, breasts and body.
The scholarship was founded in 2017 in honor of his parents.
Dr. Salemy's scholarship is open to high school seniors in the U.S., who have an interest in science and have been accepted to and will attend a U.S. college, either a four-year institution or community college.
The winning student will be awarded $1,000.
"It is my honor to offer this scholarship each year, and I'm always thrilled to meet the recipients," said Dr. Salemy. "The past couple of years have been especially tough for high school students in light of the pandemic. But many of our past scholarship recipients have also worked through multiple life difficulties and tragic personal situations–always with grit, resilience and drive that would be the envy of any practicing surgeon. So, it always gives me great joy to acknowledge these students' dedication."
