PA Foundation Scholarship Recipients

The PA Foundation recently announced the recipients of its 2015 student scholarships, which are awarded to underrepresented minority students and those who are economically and/or educationally disadvantaged. Recipients were selected based on their understanding of the PA role, what they expect to accomplish as a PA, and relevant volunteer/community service activities.
