The UCC is proud to announce that AT&T has donated the amount of $26,000 to provide economic support to students in Medicine, the Graduate Substance Abuse Counseling program, the Medical Imaging Technology program and the Biomedical Science program, so that students may persist to graduation with less debt, and therefore be more inclined to accept positions in medically underserved communities. Fifteen students, with satisfactory academic performance, financial need, and a demonstrated commitment to their careers received a scholarship in the amount of $1,733 for the 2015-2016 academic year.
