Student recipients shared their personal and inspiring stories regarding their path to medical school with those in attendance. Below you’ll find a sampling of the words of appreciation shared by our scholarship recipients.
“The peace of mind made possible by your contributions has meant so much to me as I pursue my dream of becoming a physician.”
“Words can simply not express the gratitude I feel to be given the chance to study at the University of Massachusetts Worcester.”
“After academic hard work and support from family and friends comes people like you, who invest in the future of a student. Your investment in my future is one you will surely not regret because you have allowed me to begin my entry into a most notable profession.”
“As a first generation college student, I feel extremely honored to have the opportunity to enter the field of medicine and become a physician. I feel fortunate to attend a school like UMass and eventually join an alumni association that values compassion, diversity and generosity.”
Faculty, staff, scholarship donors and guests were touched by amazing stories of ambition, dedication, and the sense of overwhelming gratitude.
UMass Medical School is grateful for its generous alumni and friends who support student scholarships, for without their generosity these scholarships would not be possible.
