For Physician Assistant major Travis Sherer ‘08, winning scholarship awards has become oh so familiar. In recognition of his academic achievement – he has a 3.58 GPA – as well as other criteria, including community and professional service/involvement, he received one of only six $1,000 scholarships awarded in 2007 by the New York State Society of Physician Assistants.

Sherer also received a $2,000 scholarship from the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), which is awarded on the basis of financial need, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, and future goals as a physician assistant (PA).

Additionally, Sherer received one of only two $1,000 travel grants from the LBG (lesbian, gay, bisexual) PA Caucus of the AAPA to attend the national conference in Philadelphia, PA this spring.

Sherer, who holds a BA in psychology from NYU, plans on completing Pace’s new master of science in physician assistant studies that will be offered in the fall of 2008.
