For years, Medical School alumni have been giving back by supporting today’s students through the Medical Student Scholarship Fund, the general scholarship fund held at the Minnesota Medical Foundation.
Now that support is having an even greater impact through the University-wide President’s Scholarship Match. Thanks to the contributions of many alumni and friends, the Medical Student Scholarship Fund is now eligible for this program, through which the University matches the scholarship fund’s “payout” —4.75 percent of the fund’s market value that is paid out each year to fund scholarships that support promising medical students who demonstrate financial need.
This makes each dollar given to the scholarship fund worth two dollars, doubling the impact for today’s medical students. Gifts of all sizes qualify for the match. You may also create your own endowed scholarship with $25,000 or more. It’s a great time to make a difference.
