At the MUSC College of Medicine Commencement in May of 2020, Devon Ball will become the eighth generation from the Ball family who matriculated from or served on the faculty of the MUSC College of Medicine.

In honor of their loyalty and commitment to MUSC College of Medicine, the family recently established the Ball Family Medical Heritage Scholarship. Their generosity will provide crucial financial support to worthy medical students in perpetuity, a fitting tribute to the Ball family’s rich history in medical education and practice.

Much has changed over the past two centuries, but educating doctors remains a vital necessity and an expensive endeavor. The Ball Family Medical Heritage Scholarship will provide medical students the freedom to focus on their education and not financial uncertainty. If you are interested in creating your own scholarship, please contact B.J. Harrington at or 843-876-0536.
