Korsh & Ally Jafarnia Endowed Scholarship
Dr. Jafarnia’s specialty is treatment of the hand and upper extremity. He is a prolific author who writes and blogs about trends he observes among his patients, including “Selfie Elbow” , fishing-related injuries, and the effects of stress on workplace-related musculoskeletal disorders. This scholarship is yet another expression of his involvement with the health of young people. He is a volunteer at the Shriners Hospital for Children and was one of a group of providers who completed 1000 sports physicals for students in the Spring Branch Independent School District in 2017.
Without financial aid Dr. Jafarnia would not have been able to complete his education, and thus when the time was right for him to make a gift to UT he and his wife Ally chose to fund an undergraduate scholarship based on student financial need. They created an opportunity for future Longhorns to see their dreams of a UT education come true. The Korsh and Ally Jafarnia Endowed Scholarship was established by the Board of Regents on March 31, 2017.
