The Scholarship winners each have a unique story that has motivated them to pursue a career in science or medicine. Chosen from a plethora of entries, the following women have been awarded $10,000 towards tuition for any science or medicine programs within the United States:

—  Linda Adebisi of Bloomington, Indiana  – Indiana University School of Optometry

—  Tanya Anim of Daytona Beach, Florida – Florida State University School of Medicine

The AMBI Scholarship in Science & Medicine was inspired by its first recipient, Karen Morris-Priester.  As the first grandmother to graduate Yale Medical School, the 44-year old Pennsylvania native’s story exemplified desire, drive and commitment to making a difference in her community as a physician.  Her life has been one of personal sacrifice to reach this goal, and she was honored for her outstanding achievements by the AMBI Brand on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
