Executive Director, John Stachniak, of the Fund was honored with the “member of the year” award from the Dr. Lanse T. Fox Memorial Organization at Fox Formal this past weekend. This event raises money towards scholarships for students attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and local Texas high schools. Dr. Fox was a graduate of Ross Vet who tragically lost his life in an accident shortly after graduating. A scholarship has been given in his name every year since 2015 to a Ross Vet student. The board of this organization honored John for his commitment in helping them establish and disburse the Ross Vet scholarship to honor the legacy of Dr. Fox. Video click here.
Welcome to the Empower Scholarship Fund
The Empower Scholarship Fund (the Fund) strives to help keep education within reach by providing financial support in the form of scholarships to qualifying students.
Scholarships are awarded to current students, especially those with the greatest need and who have established a successful academic track record. Many of these students have complex schedules and dynamic personal situations, yet strive to continue their education and advance their professional ambition. The Scholarship Fund responds to student needs by assisting those, who without scholarships, may find it difficult to continue their education.
The Scholarship Fund supports student success by helping students achieve an advanced education and invest in a better future. The Fund, established in 2000, is a separate 501(c)(3) organization that operates independently of the institutions it supports.
