Marshall University School of Medicine announces new scholarships

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Five new academic scholarships have been announced at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine which will assist medical students with educational costs.    The following is a listing of the newly created scholarships:

Linda Holmes, director of development and alumni affairs, said creation of the scholarships, particularly the Adopt a Medical Student concept, is absolutely essential to assist students in defraying the cost of a medical education and also helps students reduce their medical school debt.

“We are so pleased at the School of Medicine to develop scholarships and scholarship programs that assist our students with the cost of their education,” she said.   “Along with the usual endowed and expendable scholarships, we have added another program, ‘Adopt a Medical Student,’ thanks to the generous contributions of the Hatfields. This program allows the donor to support a medical student for four years while also endowing a scholarship.”
