RMC Alumni Fund
Contributions to this fund enable the alumni association to sponsor a variety of student programs throughout the school year including student breakfasts and study breaks held around exams; the Commencement Banquet, a celebration held the night before graduation for graduates and their families; and other special events. The alumni fund also provides funds to support the Dean’s summer research fellowships, summer research opportunities for first and second year students.
Henry P. Russe, MD, Student Assistance Fund
Contributions to the Russe Fund are distributed directly to students to assist them in defraying the costs of their medical education.
RMC Alumni Endowed Scholarship FundContributions to Rush’s endowment are held in perpetuity. Rush invests the initial gift and spends only a portion of the average annual investment return. The remaining income is reinvested with the principal as protection against the eroding effects of inflation. A gift to the RMC Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund not only supports students today, it also allows the donor to support future Rush students.
