Education Is The Passport To The Future
The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship was birthed from a desire to assist dedicated students who have shown a commitment to education in the pursuit of a medical degree. Founded by Dr. Suhyun An, a renowned chiropractor with an immense passion for overall wellness and total health, the primary goal of the scholarship is to alleviate a portion of the financial burden that many students today face. This is especially true for students pursuing a degree in the medical field, who on average graduate with over $230,000 in student loan debt, as of a study conducted in 2021.
It can be difficult for students to get a foothold in life and establish themselves with nearly a quarter million dollars in debt hanging over their heads. The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship is Dr. An's way of investing in not only future generations of physicians, nurses, and others in medical careers, but the country as a whole. These young men and women are the ones who will be responsible for the next breakthroughs in medicine and healthcare.
