Review SynCardia scholarship details and application instructions

"We hope that the scholarship will allow outstanding women engineering students to reach their academic and professional goals and, like Anna, contribute to society in astounding ways," says SynCardia CEO and President Michael P. Garippa.

Justine Bacchus says she will use the $5,000 award to pay for tuition and books.

"I knew I wanted to do something medical," she says, "but I didn't want to be a doctor."

Bacchus believes gaining engineering knowledge will help her in her goal to become a genetic counselor.

"I want to help patients directly," she says. "The counseling part is attractive. I like teaching people about what their genes mean to their health."

Information on the next round of applications for the scholarship is available by sending an email to scholarship@syncardia.com or going to the UA's Scholarship Universe website.
