Thank you so much. Seriously. Because of the unique nature of my medical education journey, finding enough money to pay for school has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done. This scholarship puts me one step closer. Not only closer to paying for school, but one step closer to being in a position to help ease the suffering of others and do some real GOOD in this world. That means more to me than I will ever be able to properly express. Again, thank you SO much!
It is an honor to be selected as a recipient of the Dr. Karl Stockhausen Memorial Scholarship. Dr. Stockhausen exemplified what we should all strive to be as future physicians, as he dedicated his life to the betterment and healing of communities around the world. My sincere gratitude to his family for sharing his story with the AUC community and continuing to provide scholarship opportunities to help others fulfill their dreams of becoming physicians.
Receiving the Dr. Karl Stockhausen Memorial Scholarship is a huge honor. The financial component will help ease the financial burden of medical school, but the name of the award means the most. Dr. Karl Stockhausen was an impactful physician full of passion for others. I try to have the same attitude as I trek through my medical education. It saddens me that cancer ended the life of such a remarkable person, but I am thankful that his legacy lives on to set an example of what we, as future physicians, are called to be.
For me, coming back to school was such a hard decision because of the worry of being able to afford and complete my program. This scholarship will help me get closer to my goal. I chose the career path I am on because a few times in my life I was the patient on the other side. I've seen firsthand the impact of what quality healthcare can do. I want to be that nurse that helps my patient not only physically but mentally with the healthcare needs. I want to be that nurse I've received before and the nurse I wish I'd had.
Thank you so much for your contribution to my success. Receiving this award goes a long way to assist financially in the pursuit of my goal to be a pediatrician. I am honored and grateful to focus more on my studies and less on financial concerns. Thank you again.
Sometimes when I'm buried deep in studying and just trying to survive to the next phase of my education, I can't see the forest for the trees and get discouraged. Especially after switching to home study during the pandemic, it just felt like I was running in place for 14 months. Receiving this award is a nice reminder to take a step back and look at how much I have grown. It has encouraged me to keep striving to achieve my lifelong dream of becoming a physician.
I am very grateful to be chosen as a recipient for this award. Receiving this award has provided me with a sense of validation for all my hard work and commitment and I am excited to continue to further my medical education. This award not only helps me financially with my tuition, but has provided me with encouragement to keep moving forward in what has been an unforgettable past year and a half.
I am so honored to be an Empower Scholarship Award recipient. This scholarship serves as motivation and confirmation that I am on the right path. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Ascend Learning for providing this opportunity to students like me. I am sincerely grateful for your support and will do my best to put this award to good use by excelling academically and professionally. Thanks for your generosity!
Thank you so much, Howard Design Group! It is through your kindness and generosity that I am able to continue with my pursuit of medicine with less financial burdens. This will allow me to focus even more on my studies, and will ultimately make me a better physician for my future patients! Thank you for caring about the future doctors of the world.
I am honored to receive the Dr. Lanse T. Fox Memorial Scholarship. Receiving this award has given me more determination and confidence that I will use to pursue my education. I have loved animals since I was a child and have always had a strong desire for the knowledge that would allow me to help them. My goals after graduation are to become a large animal veterinarian and commission as an officer in the Army Veterinary Corps.
Receiving this award means so much to me. Dr. Zareski was not only a great veterinarian, but also a fellow Ross graduate. It is an honor to be awarded this scholarship. His work will always live on through the Ross community.
I am so grateful to be awarded this scholarship, especially at a time when I am going to begin a lab heavy section of my education. You have made me feel seen and acknowledged with this award and I can't thank you enough.
