Caroline Osborne Memorial Scholarship

Giving to the Caroline Osborne Memorial Scholarship

The Caroline Osborne Memorial Scholarship has been established at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine to honor the memory of Caroline, who was a member of the school’s Charter Class.

In August 2010, Caroline joined 41 classmates in Roanoke, VA to build on her undergraduate degree in biochemistry and begin her training to become a physician. In addition to studying to become doctors, these aspiring physicians continually shared their student perspective to develop and shape this new medical school – one of the first new schools to be established in decades.

“From the moment Caroline walked on campus, she made a tremendous impact. We are so fortunate that she decided to be a part of our Charter Class and help us establish our school. Through all aspects of her life with us - whether it was learning in the classroom, seeing patients in the clinical setting, or playing with classmates in the community - she inspired us with her love of life. We are honored that this scholarship has been established in her name.”
—Cynda A. Johnson, MD, President and Founding Dean, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
