Lauren T. Vitrano Scholarship

On October 9, 2017, we lost a friend, daughter, sister, colleague, and light to anyone fortunate enough to have known her. Lauren was a gifted and dedicated fourth year pharmacy student at UIC, a Kappa Psi fraternity member, and a member of the Rho Chi Honor Society. Those fortunate enough to have known Lauren knew her as a kind and willing individual who would stop at nothing to help others. As we struggle to grieve and come to terms with Lauren's passing, we have created a Memorial Scholarship in her honor. This scholarship will serve UIC college of pharmacy students who demonstrate financial need and are taking a special interest in mental health. Although Lauren is no longer with us, we would like to keep her memory and legacy alive by helping those in need.

We welcome you to read Lauren's Eulogy, watch her tribute video , and visit her memorial website: www.laurenvitrano.com to learn more about Lauren's life and legacy.

If you would like to make a discreet, tax-deductable donation, please visit:

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
