Alumni Scholarship Endowment

SIU School of Medicine alumni can show their support by giving a gift to help our future physicians as they work to fulfill the mission of SIU School of Medicine.

Alumni Scholarship Endowment

We are appreciative of the continued support from our alumni in many areas, including through gifts to the Alumni Scholarship Endowment. Our country is experiencing a health care provider shortage; this is especially evident in rural Illinois. The majority of our state’s doctors will retire in the next two decades and it takes approximately 12-16 years to produce one doctor. The answer is clear: We need your support to make sure we are sufficiently preparing physicians and health care professionals to meet the demands of our citizens today and tomorrow.
