The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation, founded by Dr. Prem Reddy and his
family, has donated millions in support of health education, college scholarships,
public healthcare education, and free community clinics. On a global level,
the foundation supports Samaritan’s Purse by donating equipment
used in clinics in poverty-stricken regions around the world. The foundation
also funds clean water initiatives, childhood vaccination programs, educational
grants, new medical clinics, and medical missions to treat blindness with
free cataract removal surgeries or pediatric congenital heart defects.
Founded in 1989 by healthcare visionary Dr. Prem Reddy and family, the
foundation has donated millions of dollars to various charities supporting
health education, college scholarships, public healthcare education, and
free community clinics. To date, the foundation has awarded more than
$1.5 million in academic scholarships to High Desert residents.
The scholarship program was created to reward students who have achieved
academic excellence while being involved in school and community services.
The program is open to all High Desert residents who are enrolled in an
accredited program leading to a healthcare or medical-related career.
To address the significant need for healthcare professionals and physicians
in the Inland Empire, Dr. Reddy’s
commitment to education was furthered by his vision to found the
California University of Science and Medicine in 2018, one of our nation’s newest medical schools located in San
Bernardino County, California.

Local Students with a Brighter Future
Nabil Assal (pictured above) was among the list of well-deserving scholarship recipients
in 2020 and the keynote speaker. An immigrant from Morocco, Nabil, grew
up in poverty with no electricity or running water. As a small child,
his job was to take a wheelbarrow full of buckets to the town tap to fill
them with water. Nabil has faced and overcome many challenges in his life
through persistence and determination. He moved to the United States,
where he attended a community college, and in 2018 Nabil was accepted
to UC Riverside, where he will graduate with a B.S. degree in Neuroscience.
Ultimately, Nabil would like to be a neurosurgeon and volunteer with organizations
such as Doctors Without Borders. “I am an example of someone who
was never expected to amount to anything, but through hard work, I am
the first person in my family to go to college,” said Nabil.
