Scholarships are often the difference between students completing their medical education, and even practicing long-term in Kentucky. The UK College of Medicine has prioritized scholarship support for our medical students so they can pursue their lifelong dreams of caring for the patients of our communities.
The Dean's CORE Scholarship Fund provides scholarship dollars to ensure our students can follow their passion without the added burden of a higher debt load upon graduation.
This fund was established to provide support to medical students who demonstrate:
Excellence in their pursuit of medical education
Our students who receive this vital funding understand that without your help, their journey to practicing medicine in Kentucky and their impact on the health of Kentuckians might not be possible.
