Geisel Announces $11 Million in Gifts for Scholarships

A new $10 million gift commitment from a Dartmouth medical school alumnus is the third largest gift in the school’s history and the largest commitment received to date by the Geisel School of Medicine as part of The Call to Lead, Dartmouth’s comprehensive fundraising campaign. Combined with a bequest commitment of approximately $1 million from a second alumnus, the gifts will add $11 million to the school’s scholarship endowment, significantly increasing financial aid for medical students.

Supporting Students at Every Turn

Taryn Weinstein, Geisel’s new director of Student Affairs, says the school’s strong community helped ease her family’s transition from the busy New York City area earlier this year. “My role involves working in a variety of ways to help keep the students happy, healthy, and successful in all of their endeavors,” she says.
