Established in 1999, the Myrtle Siegfried, MD, and Michael Vigilante, MD Scholarship is awarded to a qualified first-year medical student residing in Berks, Lehigh, or Northampton County. The scholarship was made possible through a memorial contribution from Mrs. Elena Pascal, Foundation trustee, and her sister, Mrs. Carla Vigilante, in honor of their parents, Drs. Siegfried and Vigilante, who practiced medicine in Allentown for more than 50 years.
"Through this endowment we have created a lasting remembrance of our parents and their achievements, and returned something to the profession that my parents so loved," Pascal said.
The Foundation's "Where Are They Now" campaign began by following up with past scholarship recipients of the Myrtle Siegfried, MD, and Michael Vigilante, MD, Scholarship winners. Read where these bright winners are in their medical careers and how the scholarship inspired their success!
