PA student receives prestigious scholarship

Congratulations to Amber Race, Elon PA-S 2 who received a scholarship from the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA).  

Race acknowledged what the award means to her “I am extremely grateful to have been selected as the 2016 Elon University recipient of the NCAPA Student Endowment Grant. I applied for this grant to facilitate loan repayment of my PA education, and to further my goals of delivering high quality, evidence-based care to patients. I would like to extend my thanks to the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants for selecting me to receive this grant.”

Program director Patti Ragan echoed her appreciation on behalf of the program. “We value the leadership and advocacy of NCAPA on behalf of our profession, and especially recognize their support for students who will become our future colleagues.”

The NCAPA Endowment has foundation grants available for one student from each PA program in North Carolina.  The applicant must be a student member of NCAPA and entering or enrolled in their clinical year in the fall of the current year.
