APPNE is raising funds to establish an endowed scholarship for Pakistani and Pakistani Descent Students who are enrolled at University of Massachusetts T. H Chan Medical School, Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing and Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in Worcester, MA. UMass accepts students from all over the country. Our goal is to collect $25000 which will be matched by State grant of $12500 (50 cents/dollar) which will make it $37500.  $1500 will be awarded to an eligible student every year based on financial need and merit. The scholarship will continue in perpetuity. Please refer to these links for details: &

Please feel free to email us at or reach out to any Board Member if you have any questions about the scholarship.
