Named for one of the most prominent physical therapists in Western New York, this fund provides scholarships to second-year Doctorate of Physical Therapy students.

Throughout Al Caffiero’s distinguished career, he has displayed a caring attitude, altruism, creativity, clinical insight, dedication to the profession and an inspiring degree of optimism.

Consistent with his vision for the profession and his caring attitude toward students, he and his friends established this scholarship in 2001 to provide scholarships for second-year DPT students who have demonstrated academic excellence, public service and promise in the field of Physical Therapy. Recipients are selected based on a variety of criteria, including their history of community and professional service, financial need, professional promise and academic performance.

The challenges and opportunities have never been greater. Our potential has never been higher. And our need for visionary donors has never been more critical. With your support, the School of Public Health and Health Professions will broaden and deepen our research, make society stronger and healthier, and train the most advanced practitioners ever. Improving health at every age—in everyone, everywhere: It’s a bold goal. And with your support, it’s attainable.
