Funds for Student Groups

The Alumni Association takes great pride in supporting activities and programs of Washington University School of Medicine. One way the Alumni Association supports current students is by providing financial support to student groups. Each year the Alumni Association carefully considers all of the funding requests from student groups, which have the opportunity each fall to submit an application and speak to the Alumni Association in support of their request.

The funding request period for each school year takes place in early September. The WUMCCA Student Group Funding application is available from the Student Affairs Office or by emailing Student groups wishing to apply for funds from the Alumni Association should do so at the beginning of each fall semester. Funding decisions will be made in October.
