Student Support at MMS

Tomorrow’s physicians and physician-scientists learn in our classrooms today. They pursue their dreams with the drive to make a difference in the world through medicine, and their success will change countless lives.

When you support our students—whether through scholarships or special student assistance funds—you help future health leaders focus on their studies rather than financial burdens. Your gift of any size will bring them one step closer to their goals.

MMS Student Assistance Fund
Students at McGovern Medical School bring a passion for medicine to everything they do—from the late-night study sessions to the clinical rotations where they learn how to care for patients. When external circumstances like the COVID-19 pandemic or Winter Storm Uri threaten to disrupt their learning, the Student Assistance Fund provides emergency resources to ensure students can continue focusing on their education. Through a gift today, your generosity will make a big difference for tomorrow’s health experts.

MMS Alumni Association Scholarship Fund
Each day, our alumni are conquering challenging diseases and providing exceptional care to patients across the nation. Through your generosity to the McGovern Medical School Alumni Association Scholarship today, you can join our alumni in making sure the next generation of medical students can follow in their footsteps.

Betty Murphy Scholarship
Affectionately called “Mom Murphy” by medical students, Betty Murphy provided support and compassion to students at McGovern Medical School until her retirement in 1988. Through a gift of any size to the Betty Murphy Scholarship, you can help support incoming students who exemplify her dedication to kindness.

Doris Simon Student Fund
From learning complex topics like anatomy to developing advanced patient care skills, our students encounter and overcome new challenges daily. Your gift to the Doris Simon Student Fund will help offset the costs of medical school tuition so our students can focus on their education and become the health leaders of tomorrow.


Lynn Cutrer Angel Scholarship
Named after Lynn Cutrer, manager of patient and community relations at McGovern Medical School, this scholarship supports deserving medical school students as they train to become tomorrow’s health care leaders. Through a gift to the Lynn Cutrer Angel Scholarship, your generosity will help incoming medical students as they care for the patients Lynn continues to love and serve each day.
