Scholarship Program

The College of Medicine welcomed its charter class in fall 2009. The college educates students to become exemplary physicians—leaders in medicine, scholars in science, innovators in medical technology and compassionate providers of health care for the well-being of our community.

Starting a successful medical school at UCF requires the recruitment of highly qualified students who have a strong work ethic, an excellent history of prior accomplishments, and a heart for medicine.

Through the generous support of our community, we made medical college history with our groundbreaking, four-year scholarship program. Each member of our charter class received a full, four-year scholarship with living expenses. This allows them to select a medical career wherever their hearts may lead them - independent of financial concerns. With your help, we will continue to build on the College of Medicine's strong foundation.

Help Students Choose UCF

UCF is committed to recruiting the best students. As a new school developing its reputation and track record, scholarships play an important role in our success in recruiting extraordinary students. You can make this happen.

Future Classes Need You — Someday You May Need Them

The current annual tuition and fees are approximately $30,000 per student.

The scholarship program is critical to the success of the medical school. Offering full or partial scholarships helps highly qualified students with a pioneering spirit choose the UCF College of Medicine. The trailblazing early classes will become a defining element of the fabric and history of the college.

By providing scholarships, donors can have a direct impact on the lives and careers of our students. When you support the College of Medicine, you're supporting our community's future. After all, one or more of these doctors may someday save your life or the life of someone you love.

Be a Part of the UCF Legacy

As a donor you will be involved in the major milestones of the students' progress through medical school. One example of your involvement includes attendance at the White Coat Ceremony, where the incoming class is welcomed into the medical profession. You can be there when they embark on their journey to become exemplary physicians, innovators and healers. Four-year scholarship donors will help the dean "coat" a student during the ceremony.

What Our Future Students Need

Our students need their community to make the important commitment to fund scholarships. Your gift has direct impact on the success of our students and of the college itself. Donors may also take advantage of the state of Florida's matching program for endowed major gifts by establishing an endowed scholarship fund.
