Physicians' Hall of Sponsors

  • Since 1996, Physicians’ Hall of Sponsors (PHOS) scholarships have been awarded to deserving students who demonstrate need and who exhibit potential for excellence in their chosen medical fields. Support is given on a yearly basis and may also be renewed throughout a student’s academic career at KCU.

    A portrait honoring each scholarship is displayed in the Strickland Education Pavilion, and the name of each student recipient is inscribed on a plaque below the portrait.

    How to Establish a Scholarship

    Physicians’ Hall of Sponsors scholarships are fully funded with a minimum of $25,000. Scholarships may be funded through outright gifts or over a period of time, up to five years. Each scholarship is permanently endowed, with earnings from the endowment used to fund the scholarship each year. Scholarships may be named in memory or in honor of an individual or entity.
