Support a specific cause- the Samaha Award

Named in memory of a CMCVAMC investigator, the competitive Frederick F. Samaha, Jr. Award is an annual award for University of Pennsylvania medical trainees and students. The award is based upon both scientific merit as well as a demonstration that research has helped to lead to a change in career trajectory to an academic/research track.  The recipient receives a commemorative certificate and a scholarship ($500-$1,000) to be used for academic travel, books and associated scholarly expenses.  After making your one time or monthly contribution, you will receive an email receipt from PayPal as well as an acknowledgment letter from PREF within 3-5 business days.  Download this form if you'd prefer to mail a check.
