Engaged: The Campaign for Cleveland State announces raising $92,070,621 toward its $100 million goal with major gifts to the College of Sciences and Health Professions (COSHP), including:
Anonymous Donation for Research
A donor who wishes to remain anonymous committed $1M to the groundbreaking work of COSHP's Center for Gene Regulation in Health and Disease
(GRHD). This generous gift will fund scholarships and post-doctoral fellowships, support research and equipment, and help attract new investments that further expand and strengthen the Center’s research portfolio.
The John and Patricia Thomas Seminar Series
Alumni John and Patricia Thompson have made a $100,000 gift to support the creation of the John and Patricia Thompson GRHD Seminar Series hosted by GRHD. Launching in fall 2017, the series will bring in nationally and internationally-recognized scientists in the fields of molecular biology and genetics to present research seminars to COSHP faculty and students, thus creating additional opportunities for researchers at all career stages - from undergraduates to faculty - to network with leading scientists in the field conducting cutting-edge work at the frontiers of biomedical science.
Walenty & Maryann Trela Memorial Scholarship Fund
Engineering alumni, Eugene Trela’s first-time gift to Cleveland State was a charitable distribution from his Individual Retirement Account to create the Walenty & Maryann Trela Memorial Scholarship Fund for medical education. The scholarship, in honor of his parents, supports COSHP students enrolled in the Partnership for Urban Health.
