Help a Future Emory Medical Student!

Emory School of Medicine

Our Purpose

The average cost of attending private medical school over four years is $322,767. At Emory University School of Medicine, the average student graduates with $163,000 in debt. Many top candidates are discouraged from attending medical school at Emory due to the financial burden. How many of the best prospective thought leaders, activists, and researchers is Emory, and society at large, losing? We want to help such candidates revolutionize healthcare, combat health disparities, fight global disease, or develop novel drug therapies here at Emory!

Our Goal

Grateful for the education we received at Emory School of Medicine, where we have been privileged to serve the unique patient population of Atlanta and the Southeast, the Class of 2019 wants to fund a scholarship to help support future Emory medical students with high financial need. By helping cover part of their tuition, your gift could allow tomorrow’s physicians to pursue their dreams.

Why Now?

The rising cost of tuition across the country discourages potential Emory applicants from becoming tomorrow’s physicians. The Emory School of Medicine Class of 2019 graduates on May 13. Before this date, we want to fund a scholarship for a future Emory medical student. You can help establish a lasting legacy. Please donate to support a future doctor, medical researcher, or healthcare advocate about to start their journey in the Emory School of Medicine. Thank you!
