Support CHSU students by donating to student scholarships.
Without the financial assistance of CHSU Scholarships, a significant number of our students would not have the opportunity to pursue their career in healthcare.
Our CHSU students are a great reflection of the Central Valley’s diversity and many already call the Central Valley their home. Some are the first in their families to obtain a college degree. Many speak multiple languages that will help bring healthcare to underserved communities. And they need your help.
Ignite the Future Scholarship gala
The annual Ignite the Future Scholarship Gala, hosted by CHSU, is an opportunity for the community to help CHSU students finance their doctoral health care education through the CHSU Scholarship Fund. Join us this year in supporting our future doctors and pharmacists!
CHSU wishes to recognize an exceptional or significant contribution to CHSU student scholarships by an individual, foundation or company by offering naming opportunities at our College of Osteopathic Medicine building. This is an exclusive opportunity to leave your legacy on the Valley’s osteopathic medical school in recognition for your philanthropic contribution and investment in our medical students.
For more information about areas offered for naming opportunities, contact Chandler Jameson, Fund Development Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 559-546-6041.
The One Hundred
The One Hundred was founded by community leaders to advance charitable giving and student scholarship opportunities for future health care professionals in the Central Valley.
In partnership with CHSU, The One Hundred mobilizes the power, passion, philanthropy, and principles of women committed to supporting CHSU students through scholarships. Through philanthropic activities, The One Hundred focus on these primary goals:
- WOMEN EDUCATE the community about the urgent need to support health care education in the Central Valley.
- WOMEN CONTRIBUTE to a permanent fund whose annual yield supports Central Valley students pursuing post-graduate education in health professional disciplines.
- WOMEN EMPOWER one another and students to serve the health care needs of people in the Central Valley.
Donating to Student Scholarships
In partnership with two Valley philanthropic organizations, CHSU medical and pharmacy students are awarded scholarships each year.
Raymond Alcaraz, PharmD
“Receiving this scholarship was a huge thing for me. I could never repay the support our donors have given me, so it motivates me to get more involved in my community and CHSU to show my appreciation for this scholarship. One of the biggest problems we face here in the Central Valley is the language barrier. You’ll see a lot of parents that only speak Spanish relying on their child to translate medical terminology from the pharmacist. I want to do something to change that.”
Karen Cruz Pelham, PharmD
“When I was awarded this scholarship, I felt like somebody believed in me and saw my potential. I may not know our donors, but I do know that because of them, because of their support, I am here and I hope to make a difference in the lives of my community as a pharmacist. I’m very thankful that I have this scholarship.”
