Donate to this fund

Your support of this scholarship will honor the memory of UC Davis School of Medicine Alumni Dr. Morris K. Pleasant. A beloved psychiatrist who practiced in the Sacramento area for over 40 years, Dr. Pleasant’s memorial scholarship will support medical students and/or residents pursuing a career in psychiatry or mental health with a preference for students who have overcome obstacles consistently faced by African American male students and/or students of color. Our goal is to reach $50,000, establishing an endowment to provide support in perpetuity. If we are unable to reach this goal, donations will provide immediate support for the same purpose.

TO MAKE A GIFT BY MAIL, please make a check payable to UC Davis Foundation and mail it to Health Sciences Development and Alumni Relations, P.O. Box 160186, Sacramento, CA 95816. In the memo line of the check, please indicate Dr. Pleasant Memorial Scholarship
