The Victor for Michigan campaign is well underway, and as part of this, the College of Pharmacy has launched a $20 million campaign focused on scholarships, fellowships, and research. The College has identified three areas where alumni and friends can make a significant and enduring impact on future healthcare professionals and researchers:

This summer, College alumni have opened new endowments pledging for student support.

Richard A. Grossman, BSPharm’79, and Jody S. Grossman, BSPharm’79, have recently created a new scholarship with the College of Pharmacy. The fund will be used to support one or more students enrolled in the professional program with a preference for students planning to eventually operate their own community pharmacy, mail-order pharmacy, or other similar enterprise.

“Rich and Jody have been great friends to the College since they graduated and their generosity in creating a scholarship will help launch the careers of young pharmacists for years to come,” states Executive Director of Advancement, Peter Niedbala.

"Jody and I are grateful to have the opportunity to help young people achieve their goal of becoming a pharmacist. To create this scholarship at the College, where we first met and began our careers, doubles the pleasure," notes Rich. 

Sandy Goel, PharmD’98, has also opened an endowment in 2014 to support student career and leadership development efforts at the College of Pharmacy.

“My goals for this endowment are to support students in their professional and career development as they engage in learning activities, leadership experiences, and networking opportunities that will serve them long after they graduate and as alumni representatives of U of M College of Pharmacy,” explains Sandy.

“Sandy has served on the College’s Board of Governors, helped mentor students, and contributed her time and counsel for years. This gift will have a big impact on student development,” concludes Niedbala.
