Medical Alumni Endowment Scholarship Fund

Lab of Microbiology & Immunology Professor Terry Connell.

Scholarship assistance—which is crucial for our medical students—is provided through this fund.

The Medical Alumni Endowment Scholarship helps pave the way for talented students of all backgrounds to attend UB and excel.

While our new building has made UB increasingly more appealing for prospective students, scholarships remain a decisive factor in attracting the best and brightest. Scholarships play a vital role in attracting top students from a variety of backgrounds to Buffalo. We must continue to improve our recruiting advantage by boosting scholarships to attract superb students.

Scholarships supported through this fund recognize students’ accomplishments, and support their research and learning throughout their education and training.
