Dr. Gerald Yutrzenka Alumni Student Scholars Program Scholarship Endowment

Give today!

For 35 years, Gerald (Jerry) Yutrzenka, Ph.D., taught and mentored thousands of graduate and medical students and provided leadership at the Sanford School of Medicine, transforming much of the school’s framework of diversity. In 1992 he helped found the Alumni Student Scholars Program and two years later assumed leadership of that program, holding that position for 25 years, until 2019, when he retired with professor emeritus status.

The Yutrzenka scholarship will be given to one student per year who is in good standing, with preference given to medical students who were enrolled in the Alumni Student Scholars Program during their undergraduate studies at USD and who shows significant financial need.
