What is the legacy challenge? You can join us in supporting our medical and PA students

The UF College of Medicine is recruiting you and other alumni and friends to join our team. As medical school expenses in this country continue to rise at a rapid pace, your commitment to our students will leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Your gift supporting scholarships helps the best students obtain the world-class education they need and deserve.

Ways to Participate

Establish an Endowed Scholarship Create a new named scholarship with a gift of $100,000 or more, one of the most meaningful and enduring ways to support the UF College of Medicine. Endowed scholarships can be either need- or merit-based and are critical to the College of Medicine because they generate predictable (4% annually), growing streams of income in perpetuity.
