School of Medicine Scholarships

Support a transformative medical education.

Three Creighton medical students review documents in clinic setting.

It all starts with scholarships

When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us form a new generation of Creighton physicians ready to shape the future of health care. 

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

With your support, we can continue to bring the best and brightest students to the School of Medicine, offering them a truly transformative medical education dedicated to treating the whole person  — mind, body and soul.

Ready to meet the moment

Creighton’s School of Medicine stands at a significant moment. We’re looking back on more than 125 years of health care education but also looking ahead to the rapidly shifting landscape of our profession. 

We are ready to meet the moment. Through our clinical partnerships in Omaha and Phoenix, we are preparing some of the most clinic-ready physicians in the country to help meet a growing need for health care professionals.  

As we build upon our expertise in medical education and research, our guiding Jesuit values will continue to show us the way forward — developing women and men of competence and compassion, doing all things for the greater glory of God.

Caring for our medical students through scholarships

No one in Kailynn Phillips’ family went to college, let alone medical school. And yet her mother, Diane, who raised her in a small Wisconsin town, never let her question her dreams. She was determined to give Kailynn a life better than her own, no matter what it took.

Changing Lives

“When you support scholarships, you’re not just changing my life. You’re changing my family’s, too. I'm tearing up just thinking about how much it means to my mother that I'm getting a great education and studying to become a physician. Thank you for helping me come to Creighton. Thank you for helping me make my parents proud.”
