Scholarship Program

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.

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.
