Introduction to the Doris Hardy Memorial Grant

 The Doris Hardy Memorial Examination Grant (DHMEG) was created to honor Doris Hardy, OTC®.  Doris was an Orthopaedic Technologist Certified (OTC®) for over 20 years before her passing on September 29, 2004.  Doris was a driving force in the field of Orthopaedic Technology and was a great supporter of certification.  The DHMEG will be a living testament to her devotion to the certification of all Orthopaedic Technologists.  The NBCOT is pleased to honor her memory with the "Doris Hardy Memorial Examination Grant".

The DHMEG is a means for an OTC® Candidate to be able to sit for the OTC® Examination at no charge.  The NBCOT will absorb the testing fees for the individual that is awarded this grant.  Applications will be reviewed by the Doris Hardy Grant Committee and their decision shall be deemed final.  An individual will only be awarded the DHMEG once.
