The Legacy Foundation is proud to provide financial support to individuals working toward a career in healthcare – from nurses to technicians to doctors and more!

The foundation manages the following scholarship funds:

Drs. Heinrich and Annie Lamm Memorial Scholarship

The Lamm Scholarship Fund is a voluntary project of the Valley Baptist Health System medical and dental staff for the benefit of aspiring students in the health sciences. The memorial fund was established by the late Dr. John Ferris, Dr. Max Harris, the late Dr. George Toland and the late Dr. Tom Klug to honor over 40 years of medical service in the Rio Grande Valley given by Drs. Heinrich and Annie Lamm. The committee will award scholarships to selected individuals who are pursuing a career in a health related profession.

As we are able, we also plan to provide scholarship support to institutions with healthcare programs in areas of particular need. In these cases, we will fund the institution, which will in turn accept, evaluate and award scholarships based on their own criteria. As these programs are instituted, we will update our website with links to access those scholarship applications.
