Medical School Class of 1958 Scholarship Fund Endowment

Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences White Coat Ceremony.

Through this fund, an annual scholarship is provided to a student based on academic excellence and financial need.

Established in 1988 by class members of the Medical School Class of 1958 through their 30th reunion, this fund provides an annual scholarship to one or more students enrolled at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

The scholarship is awarded based on indication of academic excellence, including undergraduate and/or graduate academic history. A demonstrated need for financial assistance is also considered.

At least one award is made each year; more than one award may be provided. 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.
