Since its establishment in 1914, the California College of Chiropody – later the California Podiatry College, the College of Podiatric Medicine and now known as the California School of Podiatric Medicine – has seen thousands of its graduates go on to successful podiatric careers as practitioners, educators and leaders. Known for pioneering work in biomechanics, podiatric surgery and sports medicine, CSPM now enters its second century poised to lead by innovating for the next 100 years of educating podiatric physicians and leaders.
Today, as an integral part of Samuel Merritt University, CSPM is attracting - through scholarships, leading edge educational innovation and dedicated faculty and staff – the best and brightest applicants to the profession of podiatric medicine and surgery.
The cost of educating students to be prepared for the new healthcare environment is always on the rise. To support students, CSPM provides more than $350,000 in scholarships to entering students and Samuel Merritt University generously matches this for the next three years with over $1,000,000 per year. However, more students than ever need assistance with the significant financial burden of their four years at CSPM.
Please join us June 20, 2014 at the Disneyland Hotel to celebrate our Centennial and help raise vital funds for student scholarships. Guests at the CSPM Centennial Gala will enjoy a hosted reception, a delicious dinner, an entertaining program, and after-dinner dancing and mingling.
Please consider maximizing your participating by coming a sponsor. Your tax-deductible contribution will provide you with an opportunity to publicize your support of the podiatric medical community and its next generation, among other benefits. More important, your gift will provide CSPM students with the financial assistance they need to achieve their dreams of becoming highly skilled and compassionate health care providers.
“Every dollar received through scholarships takes some of the burden off to pay for my education and will help me to focus on becoming the best doctor I can be.” – G.K. Class of 2016
“I do not have savings to pay for my education; I am dependent on loans supplemented by any scholarships I have been awarded. Subsidized loan programs have been eliminated, so I now take out only loans that accrue interest immediately and the debt is mounting. Receiving this scholarship award will help lower my stress and the volume of my debt; I am honored to have been selected.” – H.S. Class of 2015
