New Florida school's dean remembers Harvard scholarship
Dr. Deborah German (left) won a full scholarship to Harvard Medical School. Now the 1976 graduate wants to offer the same free ride to students at the new medical school where she is dean, according to a story in today's St. Petersburg Times.
The University of Central Florida's medical school isn't even built yet, but it plans to pay the full ride for its entire inaugural class of 40 medical students admitted in 2009, the story says. The four-year scholarship of more than $160,000 would cover tuition and living expenses, under a money-raising campaign to be announced at UCF's main campus in Orlando today.
German's full scholarship to Harvard "made all the difference," she told the Times. Before becoming dean, she held positions at Vanderbilt and Duke.
"I want to offer the same gift that others offered to me."
