The Charlotte S. Holt Fund is used to fund scholarships awarded annually to students enrolled in a medical illustration program. These scholarships were designated by the bequest of Charlotte S. Holt, a well-known and respected medical illustrator and long-time member of the Association of Medical Illustrators. These competitive scholarships are awarded annually to students who have completed one year of their medical illustration curriculum. The applicants are judged on their background, education and support personnel as well as their graduate research project proposal. The top scholarship recipient is named the Alan Cole Scholar (see below).
