Distinguished Alumni Scholarship Program

Created in 1989, the Distinguished Alumni Scholarship Program grants four-year full-tuition scholarships to four entering students each year. A total of 16 DASP students are at the school at one time.

The Washington University Medical Center Alumni Association’s Executive Council selects four outstanding alumni to honor as namesakes of these scholarships each year. Each student’s scholarship bears the name of an alumnus or alumna who has served on the School of Medicine faculty with particular distinction. Alumni faculty, past or present, are selected based on their outstanding contributions and leadership.

Institutional funds are blended with annual support to the Medical Teaching Fund to make these scholarships possible. The WUMC Alumni Association’s Executive Council allocates funds as part of its deliberations each year.

A faculty committee selects the students based on exceptional academic achievement and character. Students who continue to meet eligibility requirements will hold the scholarships until they graduate.

Give back.  Give to the future.
