Scholarships allow exceptional students to achieve a CMSRU education regardless of financial need. Scholarships can do many things for highly qualified students. In cases where there is great financial need, scholarships can enable deserving applicants to actually enroll in medical school. A scholarship can also reduce a student's personal and financial stress, allowing them to focus their best efforts on academic pursuits and have a decreased loan debt anxiety. The result? CMSRU will educate and graduate physicians who are not only kinder and more compassionate, but who are also more likely to pursue the specialty of their dreams.
With a minimum endowment gift of $25,000, donors may also establish a named scholarship. These scholarships typically memorialize or honor a family member, esteemed colleague, professor, or friend. Donors may establish the criteria used to award their named scholarship -- for example, they may place a greater requirement on financial need, on merit, on the recipients' hometown, or another criterion. Please note that donors may not select the specific recipients of their named scholarships.
