Make a Difference in a Future PAs Life

Contribute to the MEDEX Scholarship & Emergency Fund

Every April, MEDEX awards a number of our current students with cash scholarships averaging at $1,000 apiece. Scholarships are awarded at the April MEDEX Alumni Reception & Awards Ceremony in SeaTac, WA. Currently, we have seven scholarships that are managed by UW Advancement with various levels of funding.

  • Richard A. Smith Scholarship (4 awards each year)
  • Susan Vader Scholarship
  • Mike Merrill Scholarship
  • Barbara Gunter-Flynn Scholarship
  • Jennifer Johnston Scholarship
  • Liza Benson Scholarship
  • Christopher A. Heim Student Support Fund

All these funds were established by financial gifts from the namesake individual or their families and friends. Learn more about these scholarships on the MEDEX website.

There is also the MEDEX Student Emergency Fund made possible through generous donations to provide compassionate assistance to students who encounter catastrophic events that may hamper their academic progress.

The current cost of the 2-year MEDEX program is at $73,000, way up from when you were a student, and that's for tuition alone. Contributing to any one of these funds increases the number of worthy students that we can help. Please donate here.
