The premier scholarship program of the UNC School of Medicine, the Lucius Blanchard Carolina Family Loyalty Fund Scholarships are awarded annually to four first‐year medical students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, strong curiosity, leadership qualities, and commitment to service and, in some cases, financial need. These students enjoy the benefits of the Blanchard Scholarship throughout their four years of medical school.
The Blanchard Scholarship provides:
- A four‐year scholarship intended to equal, as near as possible, the cost of in‐state tuition.
- A Carolina Family Loan will provide an interest‐free loan of $20,000 a year for four years. The student has up to 10 years after graduation from medical school to repay the loan.
- Carolina Family Enrichment funds of $5,000 annually to enhance the student’s educational experience. Money from the fund can be used for research projects, travel or other expenses related to their education.
Through the generosity of Lucius Blanchard, MD ’68 the Blanchard Carolina Family Loyalty Fund Scholarship and loan program was created in 2008‐09.
