Vilcek Hall Naming Campaign

Support scholarships and create a legacy.

Why Scholarships? Why Now? 

NYU School of Medicine is marking its 175th anniversary with a special opportunity for our alumni and friends: when you make a pledge or outright gift of $30,000 to support scholarships, you name a dormitory room in Jan and Marica Vilcek Hall, the heart of student life on the School of Medicine’s campus. 

Scholarships are not only instrumental to the School of Medicine’s continued success, allowing us to enroll the best and the brightest, but are also crucially important to the field of medicine at large. By lessening the burden of student debt, scholarships enable students to choose their field of practice based not on financial necessity, but on their desire to make the most meaningful difference for patients. Ultimately, then, scholarships may lead to solutions to some of the greatest challenges in healthcare today. 

When you support scholarships, you help our students go as far as their dedication, talent, and ambition will take them. With a generous gift of $30,000 to the Vilcek Hall Naming Campaign, you can help shape the future of medical education—and be gratefully recognized in a hall that will house the next generation of physician leaders. 


The Opportunity

Jan and Marica Vilcek Hall is a state-of-the-art residence that opened its doors in 2011, thanks to a generous gift from Jan Vilcek, MD, PHD, a distinguished faculty member of the School of Medicine and an NYU Langone trustee, and Marica Vilcek, who are ardent supporters of scholarships. Centrally located on East 26th Street, Vilcek Hall is home to more than 400 medical students every year.

The Vilcek Hall Naming Campaign is the cornerstone of one of the largest scholarship fundraising drives in the School of Medicine’s history. Launched to commemorate our 175th anniversary, the campaign will help our School accelerate the unprecedented momentum that has carried us to our highest-ever U.S. News & World Report ranking. We’re on our way to becoming the best medical school in New York, and we hope your name will be among those recognized for making possible this remarkable success.
