Jefferson is committed to improving the diversity of our student body, faculty, and staff, and we recognize that increasing access to scholarship dollars for African American males, who are underrepresented in medicine, is the single most effective means of accomplishing our goal. In this spirit, we established the Jackson-Minton Scholarship Fund in 2016 in collaboration with the Alpha Boulé of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity. We are proud to call the Sigma Pi Phi founders, Drs. Algernon Brashear Jackson and Henry McKee Minton, Jefferson alumni.
Support the Jackson/Minton Scholarship Program at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University. Donations of all sizes make a difference.
Boule Foundation Establishes the Jackson/Minton Scholarship at Jefferson
On July 26, 2016, Jefferson hosted a reception honoring the founders of Sigma Pi Phi, two of whom graduated from Jefferson: Henry McKee Minton, MD 1906, and Algernon Brashear Jackson, MD 1901 (the medical college’s first African-American graduate).
