  • $0 RAISED OF $10,000 GOAL

Support the Start of Something Great By Giving Students a White Coat!

With your help, the College of Human Medicine alumni board hopes to sponsor white coats for the entire 2021 incoming class. Your gift will also support the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund.

Each year, the College of Human Medicine White Coat Ceremony marks the symbolic beginning of the four-year journey into the medical profession. Physicians, including MSU faculty and alumni, participate in the ceremony by helping coat the students.

Your Support Empowers Future Spartan MDs

Every $100 will supply an embroidered white coat to an incoming medical student at the 2021 White Coat Ceremony on August 22. Gifts made to this fund also go toward supporting scholarships for the College of Human Medicine. 

When you give a gift, please submit a digital congratulations or handwritten note by August 11. We will compile all notes and give them to our students.

Digital notes can be submitted here.
