Deans' Scholarship Fund

The Deans’ Scholarship Fund has been supporting medical students since 2006/2007, although the fund was more formally established as an endowment in 2008 with specific criteria. The fund is intended to support one or more annual scholarships of at least $10,000 to medical students who are continuing their medical education despite facing a significant or extraordinary challenge. Applications are sought from continuing medical students who are maintaining good academic progress despite facing such a challenge either while enrolled or prior to enrollment.
