Sheffield Pharmaceuticals Announcers 2015 Merit Scholarship Winners

May 20, 2015

The Sheffield Merit Scholarship Committee announced today that the Committee awarded two scholarships for the 2015–2016 academic year to New London High School Seniors Damoya Nelson and Brawndly Diaz.

The Sheffield Pharmaceuticals Merit Scholarship awardees were selected on the basis of academic merit and financial need.  The one year scholarship of $500 can be used to help offset the costs of tuition, fees, books, and room and board.


Sheffield created the Scholarship fund in 2010 to give financial assistance to a student who otherwise would not be able to continue their education due to a lack of sufficient funds. This scholarship is used towards the student’s continuing education. Sheffield Pharmaceuticals works with Higher Edge, whose mission is to guide low-income and first-generation students through enrollment, retention, and graduation from college by providing the support and resources needed for success.
