Scholarships are a great way to support local students while ensuring excellence in community healthcare. At UPMC Western Maryland, we offer a variety of scholarships through the Foundation Scholarship Program. We invite you to consider contributing to one of these funds or, at qualifying levels of $10,000 or more, tailoring a scholarship fund to meet your wishes.

Establishing a named scholarship is an ideal opportunity to permanently link your name, or the name of someone you wish to honor, with the future of UPMC Western Maryland. Just as the name attached to a scholarship will be held in perpetuity, so the benefit renders future healthcare providers as a vital resource to this community.
