Scholarships at Indiana University School of Medicine-Evansville

The Indiana University School of Medicine-Evansville campus is the top provider of scholarship funds outside of the Indianapolis campus.* Over the last three years, IUSM-E has awarded over $200,000 annually to our students. Achievements such as this would not be possible without the generosity of our alumni and donors.

At IUSM-E the two types of donations funding most of our scholarships are endowments and annual gifts. A donor can make a gift anytime to IUSM-E’s general scholarship fund, including memorial gifts or contribute to an existing endowed scholarship. Scholarships range from $1,000 to $25,000. 

Scholarships at the Evansville regional campus are determined on three main criteria: academic merit, financial need, and professionalism. Due to smaller class sizes and familiarity of administration with each student, a formal application process is not necessary. A committee of IUSM-E faculty meet at the end of the first semester each fall to determine recipients. Scholarships are awarded each spring at the annual Scholarship Banquet.

 *As of the 2014-2015 academic year.
