By supporting scholarships, donors foster the promising futures of deserving and exceptional students. Through scholarship commitments made through outright and planned gifts, donors have a lasting impact on today’s students and their future medical careers.

At Feinberg, we want to offer a medical education to individuals who dream of helping others through a career in medicine — regardless of their financial means. Along with an outstanding faculty, meaningful clinical experiences and top-notch research opportunities that already exist, we must bolster our scholarship funding to attract and retain these exceptional students. Scholarship funds allow us to offer financial assistance to top prospects with diverse backgrounds and experiences, ensuring that financial barriers will not deter top applicants from pursuing a Northwestern University medical degree.

  • 401, or approximately 66%, of our medical students received scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year
  • $251.2 million is the current value of Northwestern's scholarship endowment (as of March 2024)
  • $800+ million is our scholarship endowment goal

Immediate-Use Gifts

These expendable gifts create new scholarship funds and last until all principal funds are distributed to students. With a commitment of $50,000 or more, donors are invited to name the scholarship.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarships stipulate that your gift will be invested and the principal will remain intact. Each year, a percentage of the interest earned on the endowment is awarded as scholarship support. Endowed funds are held in perpetuity by Northwestern University, forever supporting medical scholars:

  • $100,000 is the minimum gift to create a named scholarship fund at the medical school.
  • $250,000 is the preferred gift to create a named scholarship fund that will provide important financial assistance to our students.
  • $1.5 million will create a named scholarship fund that will provide full-tuition support for a medical school.
