SOM Gifts, End, Scholarship D02008

Purpose:

Undergraduate Student Support

History and Purpose:



Dr. Aida Shirinian is a physician, pharmacist, and Trustee of the UC Riverside Foundation. Dr. William Kaloostian is a physician with Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles. They are parents of three outstanding UCR alumni.

Drs. Shirinian and Kaloostian share a deep understanding of the need for physicians to practice in underserved communities, and a commitment to be of service to the many disadvantaged individuals and families of this region. To that end, the couple established the William Kaloostian and Aida Shirinian Endowment for Disadvantaged Students to help economically and educationally disadvantaged students, with a preference for Latino students, pursuing careers in medicine.

Selection and Guidelines:



Eligible students are selected by UCR School of Medicine (SOM) staff in charge of the FastStart Program, to identify and prioritize the neediest incoming freshman students applying to the FastStart Program. There is no application procedure for students. Personnel from the UCR SOM will notify award recipients.
