Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine is committed to providing more scholarships through philanthropy. We want the very best students, from all backgrounds, to be able to choose the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and to embark on their careers without overwhelming debt. Here’s how to support our rising physicians and scientists.

Giving to faculty

By supporting our faculty, you invest directly in advancing our understanding of disease and developing new approaches and treatments. But medicine and medical sciences—particularly in Boston—are very competitive, and hiring and retaining the very best take significant resources, which we cannot depend on tuition to provide. Philanthropic support is critical. Learn more.

Giving to curriculum upgrades, educational initiatives, and other priorities

At the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, we are always striving to keep our teaching and learning as innovative as possible, with a special emphasis on building upon our proudest traditions: serving underserved patients, emphasizing interaction with patients early and often, and making the study of research, advocacy and social justice as important as the study of medicine itself. Support from our alumni and friends helps us provide many relevant activities and continuously offer more support to our students and our community. It also helps us meet emerging needs—to build upon successful endeavors and pioneer new ones. Learn more.
