Featured Testimonial About Creighton University
The Ferlics’ vision has helped to make Creighton nationally renowned for undergraduate research.
Through their generous support, Randolph Ferlic, BS’58, MD’61, and Teresa Kolars Ferlic, help foster the talents and curiosities of Ferlic Summer Research Fellows. The Ferlic Undergraduate Science Research Program is one way the University’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURAS) ensures every student who wants to take a greater hand in exploring an academic interest has a chance to pursue their passions.
“The Ferlics’ vision has helped to make Creighton nationally renowned for undergraduate research,” said Bridget Keegan, PhD, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at this year’s Ferlic Poster Presentation on October 26.
“But I know that their interest is less about improving our institutional reputation and more about the individual transformation that each and every one of these scholarships makes possible.”
Since 2006, 229 Ferlic Fellowships have been awarded to students who study in STEM fields. As undergraduate researchers work alongside dedicated faculty mentors, they gain the tools and confidence to leverage their abilities and skills to contribute to noble causes.
“I am grateful to be a Ferlic Fellow at Creighton. It is amazing to be a part of a community that can make a difference. Like Dr. Ferlic, I want to help people live healthier lives through medicine,” said Fellow Ramya Rengarajan.
