Scholarship funding is critically important to provide deserving medical students with the necessary financial assistance to enable their medical education. Our medical school student population consists of some of the highest percentages of economically disadvantaged students in the nation. Building a strong, supportive scholarship program in partnership with generous philanthropic benefactors makes a meaningful difference in their lives.
The average financial debt upon graduation of our students who receive financial aid is approximately $200,000. With your support, we can continue to educate the most diverse and deserving medical students and make significant strides in easing their financial burden. You can make a tremendous impact by designating your gift in support of student scholarships.
Gifts designated for scholarships can be directed to support students in specific areas of study, or directed to the College’s general scholarship fund. A scholarship may be based on academic and/or financial need.
For gifts into permanently endowed funds, the principal of the endowment fund will not be invaded. Annual earnings from investment will be expended only for the stated purpose of the fund.
