Their Future, Your Legacy You can join us in supporting our students

Your generosity can impact lives of Gators and the lives of the countless patients our students will care for. 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.

Support a Future Gator Doc Sponsor a medical student with a gift of $20,000, payable over four years, to provide $5,000 annually to recruit the most competitive medical students.

Make a gift
