Our interest in patients with spinal disorders and spinal deformity does not end with successful treatment. The Sonoran Spine Research and Education Foundation (SSREF) has established a scholarship fund to assist students who are Arizona residents and have undergone surgery for or overcome a spinal deformity and want to go to college at Arizona State University, University of Arizona or Northern Arizona University. The scholarship is awarded based on how the spinal deformity has impacted the applicant’s life, how the student has been able to live a productive and functional life in spite of the deformity, GPA, and demonstrated volunteer/community service.

We are proud to announce the recipients for the 2014-2015 school year; please help us congratulate Marie Ricks and Giselle Arnold and wish them the best of luck in their future.
