Create a Legacy at the School of Arts and Sciences

February 1, 2014

“I will always be obligated to Penn because the University helped me early on by offering me a scholarship. If I had not received that aid, I'd probably not be where I am today.” –Richard Cronk, C'60

After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Penn Arts and Sciences with a degree in zoology, Richard Cronk went on to medical school and established a successful orthopedic surgery practice. Following his 50th reunion, Dr. Cronk and his wife, Robin, established the Cronk Family Scholarship, which gives preference to undergraduates from Oregon studying in SAS. Dr. Cronk worked with Penn's planned giving team to establish the scholarship as part of his financial and estate plans. “Making the decision to establish a scholarship was easy because the School made it easy,” he says.
