AUC scholarship recipient
American University of the Caribbean Scholarship
Abdulrahman Baghadadi, Class of '25

“I chose medicine because it allows me to connect with people, be responsible for them, while at the same time granting me the opportunity to be in a stimulating field that is always evolving…A lot of the chronic problems that patients suffer are primarily societal issues, and I firmly believe that the only way to truly change that is by being actively engaged in our communities; advocacy is a prerequisite for change.”

Caroline Muia, Class of '24

“I chose Family Medicine because I love how it focuses on prevention and education of diseases before they become chronic illnesses. Additionally, I love how Family doctors take care of individuals throughout their whole life span from a baby to an elderly individual. In the future, my hope as a Family doctor is to help bridge the gap by working within communities to educate people about their health…I also hope to work with minority population groups and in underserved areas, where people have difficulties accessing healthcare."

Dr. Lanse T. Fox Memorial Scholarship
Vivian Wong, Class of '25

“Both of my parents grew up in Vietnam, and they gave up their hopes and dreams to start over in a foreign country. With financial limitations, I’ve never asked my parents to pay for my higher education because the least I can do to repay them for all their sacrifices is to do what I can to pay for it myself… I'm hoping to pursue small animal cardiology or oncology and getting chosen for this award really adds fuel to my fire to keep working hard towards that end goal.”
