School of Medicine celebrates 20 new scholarships in its 125th year
In celebration of its 125th year, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine launched an initiative to increase scholarship support, resulting in 20 new scholarships for the school. Hear from three scholarship recipients as they speak about their commitment, their ambitions, and the importance of student support.
Scholarships change lives. Whether you've received a scholarship, created one or both.
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. 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.
The Scholarship Recognition Event 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.
Lisa Dunkle Scheffler, M.D., Endowed Scholarship
With a lot of sacrifice, perseverance, hope, and generous support through donors like Dr. Dunkle Scheffler, I have had the privilege of pursuing a medical education. My desire to be a physician has been reaffirmed not only through my experiences with patients at Hopkins but also through my work with underrepresented communities in Baltimore.
