Scholarships

  • Higher education has become increasingly expensive over the past several years. Scholarships can assist student to pursuing his or her education. KCUMB scholarships may be funded with gifts of cash, appreciated securities or mutual funds. Additional funding assets may be considered.

    Physicians’ Hall of Sponsors Scholarships 

    The Physicians’ Hall of Sponsors is the University’s premiere scholarship program. Physicians’ Hall of Sponsors Scholarships may be funded over a period of up to five years and are fully funded with a minimum of $25,000. Each scholarship is permanently endowed and may be named in memory/in honor of an individual or entity. A portrait of each sponsor is permanently displayed in the atrium of the Strickland Education Pavilion, and the name of each student recipient is inscribed on a plaque below the picture of the scholarship sponsor. Donors are notified of the scholarship recipient each year, and recipients correspond with donors at least twice per year.

    General Endowed Scholarship Fund  

    Alumni and friends may choose to designate their gifts to the General Endowed Scholarship Fund. All gifts designated for this purpose are joined and invested together. Each year, the interest earnings from this fund provide scholarships for medical students.

    Adopt-A-Student Scholarship Fund  

    A commitment of between $1,000 and $5,000 annually over a three-year period allows a donor to adopt-a-student. Student recipients provide acknowledgment and correspondence to the donor.
