Graben Family Endowed Scholarship

A conversation with Roger Graben
Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
I received scholarships as a pharmacy student at Auburn. Pamela and I are pleased to be able to do for a current student what was done for me in the past. I know the positive impact from firsthand experience. I also wanted to honor the memories of my parents and family, who were a great help to me.

What would you want recipients of this scholarship to know about you or the person(s) for whom it is named?
I want the students to know that I have been in their shoes, and their hard work and perseverance will pay off in the future. My parents worked hard to give their children a better life. Auburn was an instrumental part of me achieving that better life.

What do you hope your recipients gain through receiving this scholarship?
I hope it helps them get one step closer to achieving their goal of finishing Pharmacy School at Auburn University.
