Livestock Expo steers scholarships to HSC
Students from the schools of medicine, nursing and health professions have received $270,000 in scholarships from the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc.
This is the 11th consecutive year that the organization has supported the university, for a combined total of $3.07 million.
“The shared goal of our partnership is to attract the best and brightest students to our campus, and provide them with a first-class education,” said Francisco González-Scarano, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine. “Then we work to retain these professionals to practice within South Texas, where there is a great shortage of health care in rural and medically underserved communities.”
