Frigo Orthodontics Scholarship Giveaway

Ten South Mississippi students will get a little extra help when it comes to paying for college thanks to the Frigo Orthodontics Scholarship Giveaway.

Each student will receive one thousand dollars in scholarship money. Some of the requirements include a 2.5 GPA, letters of recommendation, and a thousand word essay on why they should receive the scholarship.

Dr. Christopher Frigo tried to give out scholarships to one student from each high school in South Mississippi. “We don’t always go for the top of the class. A lot of these kids aren’t at the top of the class. They are just really good students. They are good role models more than anything. That’s really what we are looking for. Who is going to help others? We tell our kids to aspire not just to make a living, but to make a difference. That’s what we are looking for, kids who are going to make a difference.”

The Frigo Scholarship Giveaway has been around since 1999 ever since Dr. Frigo started his practice in orthodontics.
