Help meet the goal for the
Dr. Pamela Gramet
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. Now, the endowment is very close to a level where it will be able to provide a $1,000 scholarship each year.
You can help push that total over the mark. The endowment only needs another $5,000. Plus, your gift of $250 or more today could be matched, adding $500 or more toward the goal!
"Caring & Compassionate"
These words are a hallmark of the physical therapy profession. This scholarship will acknowledge students who exhibit these qualities to the highest degree. This award will be 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.
