A scholarship can be the difference between a dream and a doctor. They can serve as a means to establish a legacy, honor a loved one or mentor, while directly supporting student success. Scholarship support can be established in a number of ways, including endowments or multi-year commitments. There are also several existing scholarship funds to which  gifts of any amount can be made.

Student and patient


A named or endowed position in higher education is a primary means of recognizing academic distinction, and enables the university to attract, retain and honor distinguished faculty. This type of position is supported by multi-year pledged annual gifts or with income from an endowed fund established through gifts from private sources.
