“Very few people realize how important scholarships are to some of us. We can’t help others if someone doesn’t help us.”
Our commitment to teaching began with our founding in 1905 and continues with the eight schools that make up Loma Linda University today. We believe integrating health, science and Christian faith prepares students to make an impact in the lives of those they serve. If you support these values, consider expressing that with a gift.
We live to teach.
We are a renowned “teaching hospital” for a reason: Our passion to teach touches every interaction, from the university classroom to the hospital bedside.
By meeting the greatest needs, our donors support the educational goals of our students. The areas of greatest need include:
We awarded $4.6 million in scholarships from 2018-19, enabling more than 1,000 students to pursue an education. We need your support to continue funding scholarships for bright, talented students who are driven to join the healthcare workforce and care for the patients of tomorrow.
To teach our students and prepare them for careers, we need faculty to nurture and guide them in proven healthcare principles and sound medical practice. Your gifts ensure that we can support our faculty in their commitment to train and mentor tomorrow’s leading healthcare providers.
Our students serve in countries around the world where the need for hope, healing and whole person care is urgent. They bring tangible help in the form of medical care, dental care, health education, nutritional outreach and more. Consider donating to support the students who give their time and talents abroad.
Our eight schools have unique needs that can only be met with the help of supporters like you.
