  • Scholarship Description
  • The David Geffen Medical Scholarship is a prestigious scholarship that provides four-year financial support to outstanding students entering the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Mr. Geffen, the world-renowned entertainment executive and philanthropist after whom our medical school is named, has once again made a transformative gift to medical education. This time, he has established a $100-million scholarship fund that will cover the entire education costs for a significant portion of students entering the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. The fund is about more than just money. No more dreams deferred; this gift is about helping students to pursue their dreams.

    The scholarship provides financial support covering 100% of the four-year cost of attending medical school - including tuition, room and board, books and supplies, and other expenses. All applicants to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA are automatically considered for the merit-based scholarships through the application-and-interview process.
