Supporting the humanistic values of IU medical students
The William J. Wright Scholarship Fund at IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, established by the Walther Cancer Foundation, rewards second- and third-year medical students conducting cancer research who wish to pursue a career in the care of patients with cancer. This scholarship is awarded to students who have displayed strong humanistic qualities throughout their medical school career.
Each scholarship carries a financial reward and the expectation that the recipient will devote at least two months to a cancer-related project during their school year. Scholarship recipient projects range from lab experiments to health outcomes research to cancer awareness programs.
