Medical Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund

faculty and residents in the Medical School Building.

Scholarship assistance is crucial for our medical students; this fund helps pave the way for talented students of all backgrounds to attend UB and excel.

Medical students incur an average of nearly $180,000 in debt by graduation. Debt of this magnitude discourages many talented and diverse students from pursuing a career in medicine. It also influences their choices about what field to specialize in and where they ultimately choose to practice.

Through this fund, our goal is to help resolve the financial issues that our students face, and reduce the financial risk of a future in medicine. Increased scholarship support minimizes the financial burden that accompanies a student’s investment in medical education, and can also give more students the opportunity to become primary care physicians or to practice in underserved areas.

Established by members of the Medical Alumni Association to provide funds for medical academic scholarships, this fund has an immediate impact on our students, and plays a significant role in helping the next generation of physicians.
