Medical School Class of 1973 Scholarship

Support medical students who have demonstrated academic accomplishment and financial need through this fund.

Established by the Medical Class of 1973, this fund provides one or more annual grants to a student (or students) enrolled in UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

At least one award will be made each year, based on indication of academic excellence or demonstration of need for financial assistance. Academic excellence is determined by a student’s academic history, which may include their undergraduate or graduate performance. More than one award may be provided each year.

This fund has helped dozens of beneficiaries since it was established.

In the world of medicine, there is always more that we can do. More physicians we can train. More discoveries we can make. More lives we can save. Now, even as we celebrate all we have recently achieved, we continue to look forward to the possibilities ahead. Bold ambitions require big investments—and generous support. Together, we will continue to build on our shared success and lead the way toward the future of medicine.
