Scholarship for Respiratory Care Majors Created in Memory of Gannon Student
Posted: September 12, 2013
Dr. Mark J. and Cindy A. Shulkosky made a gift of $25,000 to
create a scholarship at Gannon University honoring their late son,
Brian James Shulkosky. The Brian James Shulkosky Memorial Endowed
"Power" Scholarship in Respiratory Care will benefit financially
deserving students who are respiratory care majors at Gannon who
maintain a 3.0 grade point average.
Brian earned an associate's degree in the respiratory care
program at Gannon in 2009 and upon his death in 2010 was enrolled
in the bachelor's program for the same degree. During his last
semester at Gannon he was able to achieve one of his goals of
earning all A's.
The Brian James Shulkosky Memorial Endowed "Power" Scholarship
is among the almost 200 scholarships at Gannon endowed by
corporations, foundations, families and individuals. Last year,
Gannon University awarded nearly $914,000 in scholarships to more
than 400 deserving students from a diversity of locations,
backgrounds and financial circumstances.
Combined with the dozens of scholarships given by the University
itself, these awards reached 337 students last year. Approximately
97 percent of students at Gannon University received some sort of
scholarship award in the 2012-13 academic year.
Endowed gifts to Gannon can also help fund faculty positions,
professorships, chairmanships, faculty excellence and study- abroad
programs at the University.
