Scholarships for Students of the School of Medicine Impact the Lives of Many
In 2015 we welcomed the largest medical school class (122 students) in our history. Quite a significant growth from our first four year class in 1944 with 33 graduates! But with this growth comes challenges.
The average debt of a Class of 2014 in-state graduate was $166,250. In real dollars, that loan at 6.8% (current Federal Stafford un-subsidized loan rate) over a 15-year payoff period is actually $265,639!! Our student recipients have shared that a scholarship gift from a generous donor or alumnus they generally don’t even know, shows faith and support that inspires them to work harder and live up to their sponsors faith and generosity.
