Give from the heart for Giving Hearts Day on Feb. 11

The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences will again participate in the 24-hour giving day dedicated to student scholarships known as Giving Hearts Day on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021.

In 2020, donors gave over $155,000 to UND, providing 31 students a GHD scholarship. This year, our goal is to award 50 students a GHD scholarship!

To that end, Dakota Medical Foundation has provided over $50,000 in matching funds. Other matches are being secured. Dollars given will be divided into scholarships of $2,000.

Students will have the ability to register to win a scholarship starting Monday, Feb. 8, at

Pre-giving runs Jan. 4 – Feb. 9. Donors who schedule a gift will be charged on Feb. 11. GHD swag items will be sent to all who pre-give. Visit to make a donation.

Help the SMHS mitigate student debt for our future health care providers by remembering to #CountMe on #GivingHeartsDay!
