Zucker School of Medicine
Your Support Matters
Fund for the School
The Fund for the School of Medicine provides crucial support for the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine, ensuring funding is available where it is needed most.
From financial assistance for students to support of special programs and faculty development, the Fund for the School of Medicine provides a margin of excellence that sets us apart. Your support makes a significant impact on our educational community, and we thank you for your consideration.
Scholarships & Special Initiatives
Scholarships provide vital support to our students in an environment where the cost of medical school education is rapidly escalating. With medical schools competing for top students, competitive scholarship support at the Zucker School of Medicine helps us attract the best students, enabling them to go on to their chosen field of medicine with less long-term financial burden. 89% of our students receive scholarship assistance, and we are proud that with your philanthropic support, we can continue to increase the number of students who receive support, as well as foster a diverse, excellent, and socially conscious learning space for these future physicians.
We are proud that our students and faculty engage in scholarly research as members of our academic and healthcare community. Stipends can offset the cost associated with a student pursuing research in their field of interest, and we depend on support from our community to help subsidize their research projects.
ZSOM Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund was created to help students with financial assistance in a serious time of need. This fund is intended to be a supplemental financial resource when students are unable to meet immediate and essential expenses because of a temporary hardship surrounding situations such as accidents, illness, death of a family member, fire damage, or need for temporary housing.
