The UNC School of Medicine Medical Alumni Loyalty Fund scholarship program was established in 1966 with a modest stipend to six students. Because of generous alumni support, the program now provides over 50 scholarships each year based on need, merit and/or demonstrated leadership. These scholarships represent, as near as possible, full in-state tuition.
One-year scholarships are awarded to rising second, third and fourth year students.
A committee comprised of representatives from the Office of Student Affairs, Financial Aid, Admissions, Alumni Affairs and the Medical Foundation of North Carolina select recipients. Criteria for selection include demonstrated financial need, academic achievement, leadership qualities and commitment to service.
Scholarship selection will be made by early June. Selected students will be notified as early as possible. Distribution of funds will be applied toward financial aid package (if applicable) and will be managed by the School of Medicine's Financial Aid Office.
Recipients will be asked to thank the alumni who supported the scholarship. This is accomplished through thank you cards or letters and attending one to two alumni events during the year. Scholarship recipients should realize that they have a responsibility to contribute annually to the Medical Alumni Loyalty Fund at a time which is appropriate to each recipient.
