Annique Wilson-Weekes Scholarship of Excellence
The Annique Wilson-Weekes Scholarship of Excellence (AWWSE) was established in April of 2012 in honor of our beloved classmate Annique Wilson-Weekes who lost her battle to gastric cancer at the end of our first year of medical school. Annique was a wife, a mother, a sister and a dear friend, not to mention a supportive and encouraging classmate who started medical school at the age of 36 years old as a prestigious Eli Lilly Scholar. Our class was moved to start a scholarship in her honor because of Annique’s incredible achievements, beautiful spirit, and our certainty that she would have been an amazing physician. The Dean’s office at IUSM has recently announced that they will match the AWWSE scholarship by $42,000 dollars for every dollar we raise by July 1st. In light of this we are launching The 40k Countdown campaign with the goal of raising $40, 000 dollars by July 1st.
We know that with your help we can reach this goal, and when we do, the scholarship will be infinitely funded, reinvested, and awarded yearly to a deserving incoming student. Donations can be made to the Indiana University Gift Foundation by designating a contribution in the memo line to the Annique Wilson-Weekes Scholarship of Excellence. Thank you in advance for your consideration to help us with this worthy cause!!!
