Scholarship in memory of Sara Etehadolhagh

In May 2021, we were devastated to learn of the tragic passing of Sara Etehadolhagh. Sara was a phenomenal student in our medical and biological physics program, but more importantly, she was a fantastic individual: kind, compassionate, and thoughtful. She had a positive impact on everyone she interacted with. Processing her loss is very difficult and I know many in the community are still grieving and will be for some time to come.

In working with her family, friends, colleagues, and classmates, McMaster has put together an iFund Mac page to raise funds for a scholarship in Sara’s name here. The Department of Physics & Astronomy has begun the fundraising effort with a donation of $5000. If you are able, we encourage you to donate in Sara’s memory. The scholarship will support women in the medical and biological physics program.
