Pennies From Heaven
UCLA School of Medicine

In June 1985, the Student and Resident Financial Services Office at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA published the first edition of Pennies From Heaven for its students. In it, we attempted to provide a comprehensive list of non-UCLA scholarship and loan sources to which our students might apply. As new funds surfaced and old ones vanished, we tried to keep abreast of the changes by publishing several editions.

We are pleased to provide the latest version of the publication. In doing so, we have made every effort to contact representatives of the fund sources listed in the publication. As of this writing, all are correct. The difficulty, however, is to keep it current. Your help is needed! If you find a new financial aid source, let us know. If there is a change of address, or if an agency no longer has an interest in providing assistance, please tell us.

We hope you find this publication useful and that it contributes to your financial support during medical school. Your comments, suggestions, recommendations, success stories, etc. are always appreciated. We'd like to hear from you.
