The Sarah Loguen Fraser Scholarship is given annually to a first or second year Upstate medical student who holds similar ideals to Dr. Sarah Loguen Fraser who was the first African-American woman to graduate from the medical college. The scholarship is principally based on need, but the recipient must also have a genuine desire to provide service to the medically under-served.
Funding for this scholarship is provided by the generosity of alumni and friends of Upstate Medical University. To support this scholarship see form below. To nominate a student for this award, click here.

"My father exemplified the fact that the individual circumstances are secondary to character. He showed me that whether one is in a position of low or high prestige, they have the capacity to impact someone's life. My fathers attitude inspired me to strive for excellence and work diligently to impact others regardless of the professional path I chose. As my parents would always say, 'The reward is greater when you serve.'"
