Benson awarded scholarship

Matthew Benson of Park Rapids and a 2022 graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, has been awarded a graduate medical education scholarship through the Torrison and Williams Scholarship Program for the 2022-23 academic year.

The Dr. George and Emma J. Torrison Scholarship Fund, with support from the Fredrick W. Williams Scholarship Fund, annually awards scholarships to students pursuing careers in medicine. Endowments are managed by the Foundation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Benson is attending graduate school at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. While learning about various medical specialties and networking are Benson's priorities, he has long-term plans to use his knowledge to serve a smaller community.
