Medical Alumni Society Grants

Applications for the Spring 2017 grant cycle have closed.

Thanks to generous support from the College of Medicine, the Medical Alumni Society Grants help students achieve educational and public service goals. Each year, $30,000 is awarded to a diverse group of individuals and organizations for community service, research, global health and many other initiatives.

The bi-annual student funding grants are designed to make an impact on medical education, the College of Medicine, and the community, by providing funding that may otherwise not be available.
