In celebration of its 125th year, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine launched an initiative to substantially increase scholarship support. This effort – spearheaded by volunteer leader Peter Byeff, MD, Med ’74, and his wife Gail – has resulted in 20 new scholarships for the school with many donors also increasing past gifts.
The initial goal of the 125th Scholarship Initiative was $12.5 million, but the support received exceeded that benchmark, with gifts totaling $18.4 million.
At a recent dinner honoring this achievement, Dean Paul Rothman said, “Scholarship support remains one of my most important priorities.”
Student scholars Timour Al-Khindi, Amira Collison, and Ayodeji Sotimehin participated in a video showcasing their remarkable work and the importance of scholarships.
“What really excites me is the possibility of being the second Dr. Collison because I remember what that meant to him and meant to his patients,” said Collison, whose late father was also a doctor.
