Medical Alumni Loyalty Fund Scholarships

Deadline for application submission5:00 p.m. March 20, 2019

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 60 scholarships each year.

One year scholarships are awarded to rising second, third and fourth-year students.  The value of these scholarships for 2019-2020 is $10,000.  Current Loyalty Fund scholars (2018-2019) MUST reapply. 

A committee comprised of representatives from offices within Medical Education, The Medical Alumni Office, and the Medical Foundation of North Carolina will select recipients.  Criteria for selection include:

  • Good academic standing
  • Leadership qualities
  • Commitment to service

Scholarship selection will be made in May.  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 expected to correspond with the alumni who support their scholarship through thank you cards, letters, and/or e-mails.  Recipients are also strongly encouraged to attend one to two alumni events during the year.
