Record-setting Fundraising
for Jane Brown Scholarship
ISPE-CaSA golfers and sponsors outdid themselves at the 26th Annual Golf Tournament at Prestonwood last week, raising $14,593.73, the largest scholarship fundraising effort in the history of our Chapter. Thanks to Holloway America, Southern Industrial Constructors, and Syska Hennessy Group for your generous sponsorship. We would also like to thank Clayco Engineering Group for their generous donation to the scholarship fund. Individual golfers contributed to the fund through the purchase of mulligans and raffle tickets.

Now in its 6th year, the Jane Brown Scholarship Fund was established in 2015 to encourage students who seek a career in the life sciences industry. The ISPE-CaSA Jane Brown Scholarship is awarded to eligible CaSA student members each spring at the Chapter's Lifesciences Technology Conference.
