Series of medical student scholarships established by Singh family

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Alumnus Satbir Singh, M.D., and his wife, Shalu K. Singh, M.D., have established three endowed scholarships for medical students at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Each scholarship supports future physicians in a student population important to the Singhs.

Dr. Satbir Singh is a urologist in Wheeling, West Virginia, who graduated from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in 1994. Dr. Shalu Singh is a neurologist in Steubenville, Ohio, and Weirton, West Virginia. The couple’s obvious passion for West Virginia’s panhandle is rooted in the communities where they’ve spent the past 30 years practicing medicine. The Singhs are also passionate about helping underrepresented minorities and women pursue careers in medicine.  

The three scholarship funds support first-year medical students who are from Brooke County, West Virginia, where Satbir Singh grew up, or Jefferson County, Ohio, where Shalu Singh practices; students who are members of racial and ethnic populations underrepresented in medicine; and female students. The awards are renewable for up to three years, pending normal academic progress.

“I am grateful to the Marshall School of Medicine for the education it provided me,” Satbir Singh said. “I am now honored to be able to give back to the medical school.”
