Dr. Diters Legacy Scholarship Application: Available to Canton High School graduating Seniors pursuing further education in health related or public service/safety fields. 

In 1989, the community gathered to celebrate Dr. Edward Nelson Diters on the occasion of his retirement, after over 40 years of dedicated service as Canton’s family doctor. In his honor, the community generously donated the initial funding to create the Dr. Diters Legacy Scholarship.

Today, Canton Community Health Fund, Inc. continues to honor the work of Dr. Diters by providing Scholarships to graduating Canton High School students pursuing a future in health-related or public service/safety fields through further education, training or certification.
