EMPOWER SCHOLARS!
The Empower Scholarship Fund team hosted special gatherings for the AUC and RUSVM Empower Scholars this fall. The students shared their appreciation for the support from so many donors, and provided valuable insights into their experiences regarding the scholarship process. These students truly exemplify the title EMPOWER SCHOLAR!

THANK YOU!
LET'S FINISH THE
YEAR STRONG!

Support student achievement, not taxes!


Your support is impacting the lives of so many students!
The Empower scholarship recipients are truly thankful for your generosity and recognition! Because of the support from so many alumni, colleagues, partners and friends, the Scholarship Fund was able to award just over 300 scholarships to deserving students in 2019.
IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SUPPORT THE YEAR-END SCHOLARSHIP CAMPAIGN!
 
There’s still time to consider a year-end gift to the Fund. In addition to the year-end tax advantages, you’ll be helping us achieve the goal of raising an additional $10,000 by December 31. That’s 3 new scholarships!
 
Please consider a special year-end contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more to help the next generation of doctors, nurses and veterinarians.
