Educating the next generation of physicians

An unprecedented gift by the late Medical College of Georgia alumnus and renowned vascular surgeon Dr. J. Harold Harrison means six scholarships are available for freshman students entering the state’s public medical school.

Approximately six full and six partial scholarships are awarded to students accepted at MCG who have exceptionally strong academic and leadership skills. 

MCG is excited about this incredible opportunity for our students made possible by the generosity and devotion of the late Dr. Harrison and his wife Sue. His total gift of $66 million to MCG will enable more scholarships and faculty endowed chairs in the coming years.
