Cultivating Leadership: Crimson Oak Establishes Pre-Med Scholarship at Cornell

ITHACA, NY – April 15, 2010 – Increasingly skill with the scalpel is being coupled with skill in spreadsheets:  the intersection of business and medicine is growing.   The inefficient U.S. Health Care system is at an inflection point and its success rests primarily in the hands of the nation’s doctors.  Against this backdrop, Crimson Oak Academy has established the Crimson Oak Academy Pre-Med Scholarship at Cornell University. 

The Scholarship will provide resources for a talented Cornell junior who is dedicated to becoming a doctor.

The $5,000 scholarship is comprised of cash award and in kind services/products.  Key eligibility criteria are that the student must be “in need” and academically strong.  International students are also eligible.  With financing options for students continuing to shrivel, the Scholarship is timely.  Furthermore, the student recipient will be at a critical juncture at her early medical career where high-quality advice will have an outsized impact on his potential.


“The Scholarship increases Cornell’s capacity to educate some of the brightest young people in the world and address the challenges of society. Crimson Oak’s support will have an immediate and profound impact.” stated Patricia Watson, Cornell University Development.


Crimson Oak’s Giving Back Program is a reflection of its community’s values of: commitment, leadership and empathy.  The Scholarship resonates with the Academy’s mission: to save and cultivate leadership globally.   “We are honored to be able to help – in our small way - cultivate the leadership of America’s future doctors.” stated CEO Kevin Omar Williams.
