INFORMATION FOR

Scholarships & Loans

The School of Medicine is committed to providing as much scholarship aid as possible to students in need. Most School of Medicine scholarship funds come from income generated by the school’s endowment.

Yale-Based Aid

  • Admitted MD students who qualify for need-based aid commit to a $15,000 annual student loan. Yale covers the remainder of your calculated need–including costs for room, board, and expenses–in the form of a scholarship, which does not have to be repaid. Over four years, this results in loan debt of $60,000, which is significantly lower than the national median of over $200,000.
  • Students in the PA Programs are eligible for Federal Loans only. With the exception of 3rd year students in the Campus PA program, there is no institutional scholarship available for PA students.

External Scholarship Resources

The School of Medicine is committed to providing as much scholarship aid as possible to students in need. Most School of Medicine scholarship funds come from income generated by the school’s endowment.

Students may also receive scholarships specifically defined to cover their education costs, such as the MD/PhD program, an Armed Forces Scholarship, the National Health Service Corps Scholarship or the Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship. Admitted MD students can qualify for a need-based Yale Scholarship. Such scholarships increase the student's available resources, which in turn decreases the student's need.

Loan Information

There are several loans used at YSM to help students fund their educations. There are federal loans such as the Federal Direct Unsubsidized and Direct Graduate Plus Loan program. Students may also qualify for Yale Loans.
