Creating Opportunities for Medical & Nursing Education

In the face of rising tuition and fees, scholarships help UVA offer enrollment to qualified students regardless of their financial means. Equally important are graduate fellowships, which help us compete for the best students.

A gift to support medical and nursing scholarships is an investment in the people who will provide our medical care in the future. Medical and nursing scholarships can also make the difference between outstanding candidates choosing to come to UVA over another school. They provide students with the freedom to choose a specialty based not on compensation, but on inspiration.

Multiply Your Impact

You can ensure that UVA School of Medicine and School of Nursing continue to attract and support outstanding students and fellows by contributing to the Bicentennial Scholars Fund. In return, UVA will amplify your generosity by matching your gift through our Strategic Investment Fund. This unique opportunity to support scholarships and fellowships will help attract talented individuals from all walks of life who are committed to improving the human condition by advancing healthcare.

How You Can Help

  • A scholarship or fellowship in the School of Medicine may be endowed and named by the donor with gifts at two levels: $250,000 and $500,000.
  • $250,000 creates a named, endowed scholarship to support medical or nursing students at UVA in perpetuity. In the School of Nursing, the minimum gift amount to endow a scholarship and fellowship is $100,000.
  • $1 million establishes a named, endowed fund to support full (4-year) scholarships for sponsored students in perpetuity.
