Benefit for UC Medical Student Scholarship Fund Set for January 20, 2018

Benefit for UC Medical Student Scholarship Fund Set for January 20, 2018

Published: 12/22/2017

The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine will host the 14th annual IvaDean Scholarship Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, January 20, 2018 in the Medical Sciences Building’s Kresge Auditorium, 231 Albert Sabin Way.

The event, which features musical performances from College of Medicine faculty, staff and students, aims to support the IvaDean Medical Student Scholarship Fund for medical students in need of financial assistance. It is open to the public. Tickets are $5 for students and children under 12 years old and $15 for non-students.

The fund, named after Associate Dean Emeritus IvaDean Lair, was created by the outgoing medical class of 2003 as a way to honor Lair’s more than 50 years of service to the college and provide relief to students burdened by the escalating costs of medical school tuition. 

U.S. News and World Report ranked medical schools based on student debt and reported graduating physicians in 2015 at UC had an average debt of $182,941.

John Stiles, director, student financial services in the College of Medicine, says the scholarship fund has awarded $891,431 to students since its inception. Twenty medical students received a total of $108,000 in scholarship funds during the current 2017-18 academic year.

"With our nation’s steady increase in loan indebtedness for medical students, this scholarship addresses an important goal of helping students with demonstrated financial need to be able to afford their education and dreams of helping our society through the practice of medicine,” says Stiles.

"I believe it is important to note, also, that this scholarship has a grassroots feel to it. So many of the donors to this fund have been current students and recent alumni who give what they can to help their classmates and the generations of future students to come. This philanthropy and compassion exemplifies why our students at the UC College of Medicine are so special.”

Students who have benefited from the scholarship have been appreciative of the financial assistance as well as their interaction with the fund’s namesake.

"IvaDean is one of the reasons I chose the University of Cincinnati over other medical schools,” says Stephanie Frank, a fourth-year medical student and a recipient of the IvaDean Medical Student Scholarship.

"When applicants were introduced to our ‘Med School Mom’ on interview day, she offered us snacks, showed us past students' artwork displayed in her office, and assured us she would be there to help us in any way she could," says Frank." Her guidance has been incredibly important to me throughout all four years, and she will be what I miss most about medical school. I am honored to receive the IvaDean Scholarship and I am eager to pay it forward in the future."

For more information, call 513-558-5577 or email Lair at A silent auction starts at 5:30 pm. outside of Kresge Auditorium.

At Interview Day, I felt like they rolled out the red carpet, and then I came back for Second Look, and it’s still the same—it’s not an act. I am getting to know more people and starting to feel more at home. UC really has a great community and everything I need to really excel.”
