Nicholas A. Pennipede Memorial Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Mar 15, 2024

For over three decades, Eye Associates has had the privilege of providing eye care to thousands of patients and families across the Kansas City metro area. Our success wouldn’t be possible without the resources and help of the families, communities and cities where we do business.

Our founder, Vincent Pennipede, through his own dedication and drive, was able to obtain a health professions scholarship from the military. He then went on to start our first office in Overland Park.

Following in that spirit of achievement, we are proud to offer scholarships to students looking to achieve their college educational goals while demonstrating a commitment to helping their communities. We look forward awarding scholarships to sincere and dedicated students who share our values of community building and hard work.
