Through the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations, the IU School of Medicine annually awards scholarships and loans to financially needy and academically deserving medical students. The named scholarships and loan programs listed in this financial aid guide reflect the importance that individuals have placed on making an investment in future physicians - an investment that will yield a valuable resource and quality medical practitioners.

IU School of Medicine Scholarship and Loan Committee

The IU School of Medicine (IUSM) awards a grand total of over 5 million dollars in scholarships annually. The majority of these scholarships are used in recruitment of our best and brightest accepted students (largely focused on our in-state residents). Nearly one-third of the overall scholarships are granted or based on financial need and/or academic achievement. A very small amount is attributed to scholarships based strictly on outstanding academic achievement after the first year of medical school. Lastly, an even smaller amount is based strictly on financial need.

Students applying strictly for financial need-based scholarships must first apply for federal aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with parental information. This is regardless of the student's age or independency status. Parental information is used exclusively in selecting medical students for scholarships based solely or in part on financial need. Academic scholarships are awarded to students who do not already have an IUSM four-year commitment scholarship and who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in medical school subjects (usually after the first through third year). Recruitment (Academic) scholarships to incoming first-year medical students are awarded using the information submitted to the IUSM Office of Admissions with focus on retaining our best and brightest students accepted to the medical school. We are limited in what we can do with such a large school and very small resources.

All first-year medical students who complete the IUSM Application for Financial Assistance (by May 31) and the FAFSA will be considered for all IUSM scholarships listed on the following pages. IUSM's Annual Scholarship selections are made by the Scholarship Committee each year in late June with recruitment scholarships decided prior to the national decision date of May 15th. The average annual scholarship is approximately $5,000, with scholarships ranging from as little as $1,000 to $20,000. While some scholarships have restrictions, the IUSM Scholarship Committee maintains a philosophy of equal opportunity. Medical students receiving the Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Programs (HPSP) or the National Health Service Corps Scholarship (NHSC) will be deemed ineligible for IUSM scholarships since the HPSP and NHSC programs provide full funding (tuition, fees, books and living stipends). Like-wise, any student who is in the Combined-degree program will not be eligible for IUSM scholarships.

The 2014-2015 Scholarship Committee members are:
  • Andrew Beckman, M.D., Co-Chair
     
  • Jose R. Espada, Ex-Officio - Director, IUSM Medical Student Affairs-Student Financial Services
  • Brian Kennedy, Ph.D., Professor, IUSM-Northwest Campus
     
  • Eugene Patrick Presto, D.O., Pediatric Anesthesiology 

  • Karen A. Smartt, Ed.D., Director, IUSM Office of Admissions
     
  • Karen West, M.D., Co-Chair, IUSM Admission's Committee

  • Theressa J. Wright, M.D., Eli Lilly Company

Renewability and eligibility of scholarship assistance has been outlined by the committee in the following policy statement:

"The receipt of any academic or combined need and academic scholarship by a student is contingent upon:

  • timely receipt of the student's required information and application,
  • the criteria of the scholarship award as set by the donor, and
  • the student maintaining good academic standing."

Good academic standing, as defined by the IUSM Scholarship Committee, is a student who is not on academic probation for any reason during the entire preceding academic year or semester. The IUSM Student Manual defines what constitutes good academic standing in general.

Finally, Renewability will be contingent upon the demonstrated financial need of the student and the availability of funds.

During the period of 1965-1973, concern that Indiana was producing and keeping too few physicians, the Indiana State Legislature repeatedly demanded that the Indiana University School of Medicine increase its admission numbers.  Challenged by the limited resources of space, physicians and patients in Indianapolis, the Indiana University School of Medicine – Evansville was established in 1972 as a part of the “Indiana Plan,” a coordinated statewide system of undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education.  The system was the first comprehensive program to use all of the resources for medical education within an entire state, and to develop an integrated system of medical education which serves physicians as well as medical students anywhere within the state’s borders.
Dr. Herman Baker worked tirelessly with state and community officials to establish a medical education center in Evansville.  In 1971, Dr. Patrick J. V. Corcoran was named as the first director of the newly-established Indiana University School of Medicine – Evansville with five students.  The Indiana University School of Medicine – Evansville was established in partnership with the University of Evansville, the University of Southern Indiana (formerly Indiana State University) and Mead Johnson Nutrition (formerly Mead Johnson Research Center).  The Indiana University School of Medicine – Evansville has provided excellence in training for 650 alumnae over the last forty years and will continue to serve the medical needs of our region and the state of Indiana.
