Adopt A Scholar


One of our most popular giving opportunities, the Adopt A Scholar program enables you to have a tremendous impact on a medical student’s future by providing scholarship assistance when it is most needed. By making a gift of $5,000, you can relieve an eligible student of a minimum of $10,000 to $15,000 in future loan payments. By making a pledge of $20,000 for a four-year Adopt A Scholar scholarship, you can provide a deserving student with the assurance of receiving $5,000 of support for each of the four years of his or her medical education at New York Medical College.

As a donor participating in this program, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the student who benefits from your gift and to serve as his or her mentor, if you choose. Family members, medical practice members, and other friends, colleagues, or associates may also adopt a scholar together.
