Baylor Alumni Across the Nation Support the Next Generation of Health Professionals
One out of four Baylor College of Medicine students who receive a scholarship is dependent on these funds to attend school, and the average Baylor student graduates with just over $100,000 in debt without support.
To assist future generations of Baylor students, Baylor alumni – together with members of the community – raised over $234,000 in scholarship funds as part of Baylor’s 2022 and 2023 alumni reunions.
“I am the first person in my family to attend college and the first in my family to go to medical school,” said Christopher Almendariz, M.D. candidate ’25. “I want to use science as a way to serve patients. It means the world to me that someone is willing to aide me in my journey to become a doctor.”
Once Baylor students graduate, they automatically become a member of Baylor’s Alumni Association, staying connected with the College and with former classmates and professors to celebrate accomplishments and support Baylor’s mission through events like Alumni Reunion and department receptions.
Most recently, over 170 alumni gathered for the first in-person Reunion in four years for three unforgettable days of connecting, reminiscing and sharing accomplishments as Baylor-trained professionals.
