Scholarship Initiative

Frank Burns, MD, GLMS Foundation Scholarship Committee Chair

Help the GLMS Foundation provide UofL medical students scholarships!

I am honored to be the new Co-Chair of GLMSF’s Medical Scholarship Program along with Dr. David Watkins. I have very big shoes to fill as I am replacing Dr. Linda Gleis after her extreme hard work and dedication as the previous Co-Chair of the program for the last 12 years. Under Dr. Gleis and Dr. Watkins, and with the continued All-Tourney Sponsorship by Stock Yards Bank, the event has grown each year since it began 12 years ago. At the Doctor’s Cup golf event in August of 2022, the Scholarship Committee awarded 8 scholarships of $8,000 each to deserving University of Louisville medical students. Mark your calendars for the 2023 Doctor’s Cup golf event on Monday, September 18th once again at Hurstbourne Country Club.

This year will be our 13th year to host the Doctor’s Cup and we are hoping to increase our support by providing more scholarships to these future physicians. Our scholarship initiative has awarded over $380,000 in scholarships over the past 12 years.

Please consider helping more of our deserving medical students by making a 3 to 5-year pledge or a donation to “Scholarships.” You can share in the joy that members of the Scholarship Committee feel each year as we see the faces of these students accepting their scholarships!

Thank you to Dr. Gleis, Dr. Watkins and Stock Yards Bank along with all of our committee members, Foundation staff and volunteers for making this investment in our future physicians!
