Scholarships change lives. Whether you've received a scholarship, created one or both.

From the day the Johns Hopkins University enrolled its first class in 1876, scholarships have been provided to excellent students who otherwise might not have the means to attend. It was a condition of Johns Hopkins' bequest that such support be provided for students "most deserving of choice because of their character and promise."
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, its alumni and its friends remain committed to this same tradition of philanthropic support for its current student body over 100 years after Mr. Hopkins made such provisions in his will. Scholarships play a crucial role in attracting the exceptional students that continue to make this a top rated medical school.
The Scholarship Recognition Event is a wonderful event that brings together School of Medicine scholarship donors and scholarship recipients. Students have a chance to say a personal and heartfelt "thank you," and donors have a chance to see the impact on the lives their investment makes. Personal stories abound, connections are made and lasting friendships are created.
On April 18, the School of Medicine hosted the 2013 Scholarship Recognition Event in the Armstrong Medical Education Building. Thank you to everyone who attended this year's Scholarship Recognition Event.
Your financial support ensures that all students have equal access to the best education this country can offer, regardless of their ability to pay. And in my opinion, education is the great equalizer of this nation. In fact, I hold this belief to be of such great importance that I took a year off medical school to teach at my local high school to ensure that others may also pursue their dreams. Your financial support ensures that this creed remains true at Johns Hopkins. - Hung Tran, M.D. ’04, scholarship recipient

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Scholars
The Johns Hopkins Medicine Scholars (formerly known as the Board of Advisors Scholarship) is one of the School of Medicine’s most prestigious scholarship awards. The scholarship was established in order to:
- Attract and retain the best students from diverse backgrounds;
- Eliminate financial barriers for the most talented students to pursue medical school;
- Identify the next generation of leaders who will have a significant impact in healthcare.
This scholarship offered by the School of Medicine is funded by the generosity of members of the Board of Trustees and the Dean’s Office. Since 2009, nine scholarships have been funded.
