The Manser Scholarship

History

A family, who wished to pay special tribute to the skilled and compassionate care their father received under the care of Dr. Thomas J. Manser, associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at EVMS, made a special donation to EVMS in April 2002.  The donors directed that Dr. Manser be given the honor of directing all the expenditures from this fund.  Dr. Manser decided that the funds should be used to enhance and promote EVMS educational programs for medical students and Internal Medicine residents.  The outcome includes this scholarship to support education and living expenses of a student.  Dr. Manser hopes that recipients of this scholarship consider making a similar scholarship gift once they are established in their careers.

Criteria

The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student based on financial need.
