Don Akanji, our founder’s late husband, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday June 21, 2015. He attended Louisiana State University and worked as a Software Engineer. Don was passionate about mentoring students interested in STEM. He often spent part of his weekends speaking with students about their future and inspiring them to pursue STEM fields. The Mentorship Squad Scholarship was created to honor Don’s spirit and inspire the next generation of women physicians.
The selected recipients will receive $500 towards education-related expenses only.
