Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine




Few gifts offer greater satisfaction than a gift to scholarships—one that fosters the promising futures of deserving and exceptional students, and lives in perpetuity through their accomplishments. Through a scholarship commitment, donors have a lasting impact on today’s students and the promise of their future medical careers.

At Feinberg, we want to offer the choice of a medical education to individuals with a dream to help 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.

Donor Opportunities for Scholarships

With an immediate-use gift in support of scholarships, you can see your philanthropy in action. 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 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:

Expressions of Gratitude

Jessica Hsueh

“When I think beyond myself to the impact your family has made on the medical field, I can only begin to wonder at the number of students your family has helped over the years; the physicians that those students grew up to be, and the patients they have saved throughout the course of their practice.”

Jessica Hsueh, Class of 2019
Dr. and Mrs. Alfred S. Burdick Scholar
