Join our Community of Scholarship Supporters for Day of Giving: March 4, 2020

Published Date:

MEDPREP has a long history of preparing outstanding men and women who come from disadvantaged backgrounds for the health professions. Over 1,100 students have entered medical or dental schools in our nearly 50 year history, including cardiologist Dr. Darrell Solet (MP '96), and current medical student Ademola Adeoshun (MP '19). Today more than ever, finances can present a major impediment for students coming to, and completing, MEDPREP. That's where scholarships can make a huge difference. As part of this year's Day of Giving, we have a fundraising goal to endow two special endowed scholarships that will support MP students in perpetuity: The Shirely McGinn Scholarship and the Tamara O'Neal Scholarship. Click to read more about the McGlinn Scholarship and O'Neal Scholarship, and if you'd like to join our community of supporters with a gift for Day of Giving, please visit our secure Scholarship Giving Page between now and March 4, 2020. We thank you for your support of our future MEDPREP scholars!
