The country was descending into civil war following nationwide protests calling for the ouster of President Bashar Assad.

Sanofi Pasteur has provided scholarships to our community’s college students, most recently through a multi-year commitment to East Stroudsburg University (ESU). Each year, this program assists two local associate degree graduates entering ESU who are continuing their education in the sciences. The funding also helped provide needed scientific equipment in ESU’s classrooms, supporting one of ESU’s strongest majors, biology, which has approximately 650 students enrolled.
Sanofi Pasteur knows that investing in the youngest of all will pay great dividends back to the community. One example is the company’s support of Pocono Services for Families and Children’s scholarship program, which will provide funding for local children graduating high school previously enrolled in Monroe County Head Start. This scholarship was created in honor of recently retired Sanofi Pasteur U.S. President Damian Braga, underscoring his commitment to Head Start and the community.
