Awards, Endowments, and Scholarships (College of Medicine)
For decades the Guild has provided awards, endowments, and scholarships to both medical students and biomedical graduate students in the College of Medicine to acknowledge the best and the brightest students.
The Thomas and Emily Maren Award
This award continues the tradition that began in 1999 to honor Dr. Thomas Maren, Graduate Research Professor Emeritus and founding chair of the Pharmacology and Therapeutics Department, by his wife, Emily Sabah-Maren. The award will be given to The Equal Access Clinic Network beginning in May 2019. It reflects on the Marens’ desires to promote quality medical student education and healthcare for the under-served.
The Medical Guild Establishes Second Endowment
The UF Medical Guild executed its second endowment on October 31, 2020 to establish the “UF Medical Guild Graduate Research Award For Biomedical Science Interdisciplinary Programs” (Fund). The Guild is proud to have sponsored this robust and scholarly competition since 1975. We are cognizant of the excellence the competition promotes among the biomedical science graduate students, which is congruent with Guild goals to promote medical research and education. With funding from this endowment, Graduate Research Award support will continue in perpetuity.
