Corder Family Scholarship Fund

This fund provides $2,500 ($1,250 per semester) to an undergraduate majoring in biochemistry, biomedical sciences or pharmacology and toxicology.

The scholarship was made possible by an endowment established by Linda (Lyn) Corder, former Associate Dean for Advancement and Alumni Affairs for UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

Corder established the fund in memory of her parents for “the ideals they exemplified in our family, neighborhood, work places and through their own philanthropy – time, dedication and resources”.

The fund will benefit hardworking and deserving undergraduates in the UB Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The first Corder scholarship will be awarded for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Completion of one academic year prior to receipt of the award.

  • Financial need may be taken into account but will not be the sole determining factor in awarding the scholarship.
