Carrying on a Philanthropic Legacy

Inspired by her mother’s philanthropic giving, Hema Gowda ’01, biological sciences, established the Gowda Scholarship Endowment for UMBC in 2016 to help students interested in pursuing graduate studies in pharmacy find success at UMBC.

“When [my mother] retired, she set up endowments at [The University of Maryland,] College Park in the name of her parents because they were the ones that pushed her for higher education,” says Gowda. “She is the person she is today because of them…So I’d always been inspired by that and wanted to give back to UMBC because it was the foundation for my career.”
