Dr. Pamela Gramet Endowed Scholarship

When Dr. Pamela Gramet retired following a long career with Upstate, an endowment was established in her honor to award an annual scholarship to a third-year Physical Therapy student. 

"Caring & Compassionate"

These words are a hallmark of the physical therapy profession. This scholarship acknowledges students who exhibit these qualities to the highest degree. This award is given to a physical therapy student in his or her last year of the program who best exemplifies the core values of caring and compassion in both the clinical and classroom settings.
