Brewton native Scott Ryland will be memorialized by family and friends through the establishment of a scholarship in his name for the Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA) degree program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Scott was a graduate of the MSHA program in the School of Health Related Professions and was a candidate in the doctoral program in health administration at the time of his death in May of this year. The goal of the scholarship drive organizers is to endow the scholarship so that it will become a lasting tribute to Scott's memory and will be available in perpetuity to assist deserving students who share his desire for furthering their education in health administration.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham requires a minimum of $25,000 in contributions to establish an endowed scholarship. The contributions for an endowed scholarship are invested and annual earnings from the investments are used to make the scholarship awards each year.
Gifts may be made by check payable to UAB and mailed to: Ryland Memorial Scholarship, SHRP Dean's Office, Webb 616, 1530 Third Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35294-3361.
Gifts may also be made by credit card or by donation of appreciated stock.
