“Dear Supporters of the AMA Ohio Honor Fund Scholarship,
I am extremely grateful for your contributions to the AMA Foundation scholarship I was awarded this year. I cannot express how surprised and excited I was to receive the announcement informing me of my selection for the scholarship. I literally jumped for joy and immediately shared the news with my friends and family. A medical school scholarship of this size is hard to come by and being selected for it is an honor.
This scholarship means a tremendous amount to myself and my family. I come from modest backgrounds and have supported myself through college and medical school independently. In addition, my partner is a medical student with a similar background. Together, we have amassed an uncomfortable level of student debt and are consistently looking for ways to reduce our financial load. This is compounded by the fact that we have two beautiful, happy children, for whom we have additional childcare expenses. This scholarship is a huge relief to our family and receiving it has resulted in a tremendous burden being lightened. We cannot thank you enough.
