On November 7, 2016, faculty leaders from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA joined UCLA Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship recipients at an annual dinner. The event provided an opportunity for the scholars to share their medical-school experiences, career goals, aspirations and the overall impact this scholarship has had on their lives.

The UCLA Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship, a full-tuition, merit-based award, has empowered 40 aspiring physicians and scientists to pursue careers aligned with their personal passions, unburdened by debt, and has helped enhance the school’s reputation and competitiveness.

Since its establishment in 2012 by an anonymous donor, the UCLA Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship has inspired additional giving to medical-student scholarships. In 2016, in an effort to increase student support, the anonymous donor committed to matching donations made to any medical scholarship with a special gift of equal size, up to a total of $1 million, to the UCLA Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship. This matching campaign surpassed its goal by raising $1.2 million for the next generation of medical students.
