MHA students receive Foster G. McGaw Graduate Student Scholarship
Two Master of Health Administration (MHA) students, Vinh Nguyen and Ana Lanier, have been named the recipients of the Foster G. McGaw Graduate Student Scholarship for 2020.
Faculty in the MHA program selected Nguyen and Lanier due to their overall student performance both academically and experientially. Nguyen and Lanier were both awarded $750.
“I am beyond grateful for what the Foster G. McGaw Scholarship provides,” said Nguyen, a Georgia native. “Being awarded this scholarship provides me with a solitary confirmation of my dedication and passion for health care.”
“This scholarship will help with any financial burdens that arise throughout the year,” said Lanier, a Suffolk, Virginia, native. Lanier currently works as a graduate assistant for Student Wellness and Health Promotion and plans to work in hospital administration after graduation.
Since 1975, more than 900 scholarships have been awarded. The scholarship was endowed by Foster G. McGaw, the founder of the American Hospital Supply Corporation. McGaw recognized the importance of health administration education and AUPHA’s contribution to the field.
