Scholarships & Giving


Morris Slotin Scholarship Fund (Physical Therapy)

The Morris Slotin Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Morris (Moe) Slotin, a physical therapist for CareOne Home Health Services in Savannah and clinical instructor in AASU's Department of Physical Therapy.

Slotin chose physical therapy as a second career, following a successful first career in the music business as a sound engineer. His dedication to the physical therapy profession and lifelong learning were an inspiration to his students, colleagues, and patients. For these reasons, the Morris Slotin Endowed Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding student who has chosen physical therapy as a second career.

Donations to the Morris Slotin Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund can be made payable to the Armstrong Foundation, Armstrong Atlantic State University, 11935 Abercorn Street, Savannah, GA 31419.

Thomas Spencer McCormick Presidential Scholarship (Communication Sciences & Disorders)

The Thomas Spencer McCormick Presidential Scholarship was founded in 2006 by Mrs. Jeanne McCormick in memory of her late husband, Thomas McCormick. Mr. McCormick was a client at the RiteCare Center following a stroke in 2004, until his passing in October 2005. This scholarship endowed in his memory is awarded to two graduate students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program each spring based on academic/clinical merit and financial need.
