This scholarship for fifth-year occupational therapy students is
awarded in memory of Kathy Shaffer, a 1987 graduate of the UB
occupational therapy department baccalaureate program and senior
therapist at Erie County Medical Center. Shaffer’s
contributions to UB included course instruction and fieldwork
supervision of students. She is best remembered for her excellent
clinical skills and mentoring relationships with students.
Students are nominated for the award by occupational therapy
faculty. A committee of faculty members, colleagues and family
members select the recipient.
