"The Horvat Scholarship provided me with the opportunity to get an excellent undergraduate education. Having the scholarship allowed me to focus on my academic and research interests. I was able to prioritize internships and research projects rather than having to work exclusively to pay tuition. These experiences in turn prepared me for medical school. The Horvat Scholarship continues to have a positive impact on my life today. I am able to practice as a primary care provider in my hometown of Avoca in large part because I do not have educational debt. I am tremendously grateful to the late Dr. Horvat and to the Foundation."

"My education is something that is very important to me, and vital to the success of my future. Receiving the Horvat Scholarship allowed me to attend the University of Pittsburgh for my undergraduate degree and toward my goal of becoming a Physician Assistant. I am currently a Physician Assistant student at the University of Pittsburgh. This scholarship is allowing me to focus on my educational path to becoming a Physician Assistant, not entirely on the financial burden that comes with it. In the long run, the Horvat scholarship will help not just myself, but others that I will impact in the medical field. I am so grateful to the late Dr. Horvat and the foundation left in his honor. I cannot wait for my end goal, that would not have been possible without it."
