Total Giving to the School of Pharmacy to Date
"It was an honor to receive a donor-funded scholarship this year. With a reduced financial burden, the scholarship helped me concentrate more on my academics. Not only did the donor’s generosity reduce my financial burden, it also taught me to be generous and give willingly to help others to promote a good cause; that is a lesson I will have for a lifetime."
