Scholarships at IU School of Medicine-Evansville

Donors to IUSM-E make scholarship awards possible each year for well over half our total medical students. Annually, over $150,000 in tuition assistance is awarded to first and second-year medical students in Evansville, ranging from $1,000 to $25,000.

At the end of each Fall Semester, the IUSM-E Scholarship Committee meets to determine annual scholarship selections, based on comparative student academic performance, student's demonstrable financial need as defined by the IUSM Office of Medical Student Affairs, and any restrictions specified by each scholarship. Scholarships awarded to first-year students usually continue during his/her second year. Some specific scholarships awarded initially to second-year students must be used for tuition during their third year of medical school, beginning in June after second year.

The two types of donations funding most scholarships are endowment and annual gifts. Yet any donor can make a gift anytime to IUSM-E's general scholarship fund, including memorial gifts or contribute to an existing endowed scholarship.
