Over the past decade, Dr. Ila Shah, alongside our Foundation’s Director, Dr. Vinod Shah, has steadfastly supported underprivileged medical students in Gujarat with a dedicated fund.
These students’ inspiring journeys, rising from disadvantaged backgrounds, highlight the transformational power of modest financial aid.
They graduated as skilled physicians, improving their families’ social and financial status, and are now giving back to society, creating a virtuous cycle.
At the GOSUMEC Foundation, our aim is to emulate this corpus structure, ensuring sustained assistance for those facing financial challenges.
A $200,000 Student Corpus Fund has been created to support financially disadvantaged medical students.
It provides a yearly 5% draw of $10,000, covering annual expenses including tuition, textbooks, and meals at $2,500 per student.
These funds go beyond financial aid, offering hope and freedom to excel.
They serve as beacons of hope for talented individuals who harbor aspirations of excelling in the field of medicine.
We strive to relieve economic hardship for promising students, giving them the freedom to fully dedicate themselves to their education and training.
Graduates become healthcare professionals who become mentors and give back, creating a positive ripple effect.
GS Medical College will annually identify students in need, ensuring this opportunity reaches those who need it most.
Together, through the Corpus Fund, we are helping shape a more equitable future at our alma mater.
Initially targeting those facing financial challenges, these scholarships aim to alleviate the burden of financial constraints, enabling students to dedicate their focus to academic pursuits without the added stress of economic pressures.
