Student Testimonials

“Thank you Alumni Association for your benevolence in awarding both myself and my peers with this generous scholarship. Your recognition of the achievements of current students truly help us feel supported and appreciated, and in turn, we appreciate your endorsement.”
Sujana Bhattacharyya

“Thank you for your support. As medical students, there are so many opportunities that we are encouraged to participate in, but often the cost is a limiting factor. With your support, I will be able to attend the Society for Student Run Free Clinics conference and a Cranial Academy course. At the SSRFC conference, I will be presenting a poster on the chronic disease management pilot at the Rowan SOM Camden Saturday Health Clinic. The cranial course will help me expand my OMM understanding, give me the basis for future courses and build skills I want to use in my practice.”

“I feel privileged to pursue my medical education in a school that gives so much to its students. In addition to scholarships, the faculty and staff at Rowan SOM provide many resources to the entire student body including financial assistance and academic strengthening though the Center for Teaching and Learning. In accordance with osteopathic principle, it is apparent student well-being is a priority, which I am most appreciative for, in addition to the communal environment SOM fosters. I wish to note that my medical education is financed entirely through student loans and this scholarship will prove to be a great assistance in lowering the debt I will acquire as well as associated financial stressors, allowing me to focus more on my academics and giving back to the community. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for this honor. Thank you very much.”

“Please accept my sincerest gratitude for the Eva Leventhal Scholarship. With your financial assistance I was able to concentrate on my academic performance during my clinical rotations while still pursuing extracurricular activities. This past year I received top marks in all of my preceptor evaluations, published original research in the Journal for Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, wrote an article that appeared on, was featured in a health story in The South Jersey Times, and volunteered for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Center for Family Services. Your generosity and support are contagious and will continue to inspire me to give back to the community and help others. I hope to one day assist other students in accomplishing their goals in the way that you have helped me achieve mine.”

It makes a tremendous difference in my efforts to become a physician. As both a gift and a promise, it makes me look forward to a future of doing well by my patients and giving back.”

“Scholarships do more than just ease financial burden. They provide students with incentive to tap into their fullest potential and explore avenues that help them develop professionally. Scholarship opportunities are motivation for students to venture out of their comfort zone, gain meaningful life experiences, contribute to their communities, and grow as individuals. I am very grateful to the RowanSOM Alumni Association and the William F. Daiber, D.O. Endowed Scholarship for their generous contributions to not just my education but also my professional growth. Thank you.”

“I am sincerely honored to have been selected as the recipient of the Risq G. Haddad Medical Student Scholarship. Your generosity and commitment makes the pursuit of higher education attainable and less burdensome. I am currently a first year medical student and I am thankful for each opportunity to grow, not only as a student physician, but as an individual. Your contribution has and will not only affect me but will go a long way in furthering and promoting my educational and career aspirations to affect a wider range of individuals. I hope to become a successful physician who employs the osteopathic philosophy of treating patients as an integrated whole to diminish healthcare disparities and focus on preventive care to evoke better healthcare and eliminate barriers to effective medicine. Thus, I am immensely grateful for your generous gift and thank you for investing in my future and recognizing the potential of Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine to inspire and foster successful medical students.”

“As a student working to advance my medical career, thinking about financial obligations can be a daunting task. This is why I truly appreciate you for supporting the student scholarships. The impact that this donation will have on me is far more than monetary. Not only will it cover costs for my education, it will provide me with a sense of relief, knowing that I can pursue my dreams uninhibited by financial burdens. Most importantly, as a recipient of this award, I am honored and inspired to now give back to a scholarship fund with the hopes of giving someone else the same opportunity that you afforded me.”
