The Foundation encourages the educational pursuits and development of PA students by recognizing and awarding outstanding students. The Foundation seeks applicants who exhibit leadership, scholarly achievement, community involvement, and moral and ethical character who will represent and promote the PA profession with integrity.

We believe there is honor and satisfaction in applying one’s energies and knowledge for the betterment of others’ lives.

We recognize the importance of fundamental education and core knowledge each physician assistant student must acquire to prepare for a fulfilling career.

We admonish continued support of educational institutions for individual pursuits in medicine and research.

We strive for physician assistants whose goal is improving quality and access of care for all people of the world.

We hope those who succeed in their journey to become physician assistants may always give more to others as they have received such great opportunity, ability and knowledge to share.
