Fuentek Cosponsors Excellence Fund Scholarship for 2009-2010 UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine Student

(July 6, 2009)

APEX, N.C. – Laura A. Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC announced that the firm is cosponsoring a scholarship for a medical student at UNC-Chapel Hill through the Excellence Fund for the second consecutive year. The Excellence Fund provides support for programs in UNC Hospitals and the School of Medicine through annual, unrestricted gifts from non-medical alumni. These donations provide support for patient care, research and medical education. Scholarships are typically awarded to first-year medical students, and recipients are determined based on their financial need.

Fuentek is cosponsoring the scholarship for the 2009-2010 school year with Scintellix, LLC, an international network of biomedical technology consultants headquartered in Raleigh. The Co-Founders’ Club, the annual recognition society of The Medical Foundation of NC, Inc. has recognized both Schoppe and Peter C. Johnson, president and CEO of Scintellix, as members for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. The club honors individuals who have given $2,000 or more cumulatively to any area of UNC School of Medicine or UNC Hospitals.

“We are pleased to support the education of a UNC medical student through the Excellence Fund for the second year in a row,” said Schoppe. “Students often graduate with immense amounts of debt and, given the current economic climate, it is more important than ever to help students graduate with the least amount of debt possible. This full-tuition scholarship gives medical students the ability to concentrate on their careers after graduation.”
