Linda Craig Memorial Scholarship presented by St. Vincent's Sports Medicine

The Linda Craig Memorial Scholarship, a program of the Pacers Foundation, Inc., provides scholarships for undergraduate college students presently enrolled in an Indiana college or university. The scholarship is awarded to deserving students with an academic major of medicine, sports medicine, physical therapy and/or other related disciplines.

The scholarship was established in the memory of Linda Lorraine Sharvelle Craig by Indiana Pacers team trainer, David Craig, and Dr. John Abrams. The scholarship is supported by those who remember Linda and who want to perpetuate her legacy through the scholarship recipients.
