SCAPA to Match Gifts to Elizabeth Gouge Scholarship Fund


SCAPA is pleased to announce that we will match all gifts to the Elizabeth P. Gouge Memorial PA Scholarship Fund up to a total of $5,000. This means that today, you can double your gift and make twice the impact in changing the life of a future PA!


SCAPA established the Elizabeth P. Gouge Memorial PA Scholarship Fund in the late 1990’s in memory of a devoted SCAPA member, long-time SCAPA treasurer and an alumnus of the MUSC PA program. MUSC awards the scholarship annually to an incoming PA student, and SCAPA makes an annual contribution to the fund in recognition of our PA of the Year, but the time has come for this scholarship to become endowed.


In order for it to be endowed, the scholarship fund must reach $50,000. In an effort to raise the $10,000 needed to make this happen, the SCAPA board approved a campaign to match all gifts up to $5000. The SCAPA Executive Board has set the tone for the campaign with 100% participation and invites all SCAPA members to join the effort. Gifts by PAs who knew and worked alongside Elizabeth Gouge in those early years of SCAPA’s existence, gifts by MUSC graduates who are now successfully practicing PAs, gifts by those who have benefited from the scholarship, gifts by those who are looking for a good cause to support, and gifts by those who just want to support our PA future are all encouraged.


Please consider helping us to support the scholarship in the name of one of the great leaders of the PA profession in South Carolina by using the following link to make a donation to the MUSC Health Science Foundation toward the Elizabeth P. Gouge Scholarship Fund.
