Leaving a Legacy through Scholarships

A new scholarship has been created at WCF thanks to one Williamsburg couple, James and Bihin Perisie. Although they have passed away, their generous bequest will continue to support scholarships for female medical students for many years to come.

The Perisie Scholarship in Memory of James P. and H. Bihin Perisie will provide for one scholarship each year for a female student to attend medical school in Virginia or North Carolina. This scholarship is intended to support students from greater Williamsburg (including the City, and the counties of James City, York, Charles City and New Kent.)

The Perisie Scholarships will benefit not only the individual student and her family, but also our entire community, as they are intended for a student who plans to have a general practice in the Williamsburg area.

More information and guidelines for the Perisie Scholarship will be available in the fall of 2019. To learn more about planned giving options, please visit our Website or contact me at ncsullivan@williamsburgcommunityfoundation.org..
