– Medical Schools Scholarships –

Attending medical school is a dream for many. But achieving that dream comes with a high price tag. Medical schools scholarships are a great way to cut down the costs of medical school.

Medical Schools Scholarships

While it may seem impossible to graduate from medical school debt-free, a select group of students receives a free or heavily discounted medical education.

This happens because they attend a tuition-free medical school, receive a substantial scholarship, or make a service commitment for an education subsidy.

There are several scholarships available for students with excellent academic records, particular research interests, or even for those who identify as part of a minority group

Some towns and cities have scholarships for local students, and many universities have their own institutional scholarships.

How to Find Funding for Medical Schools Scholarships

It is well worth your time to search for scholarships both before and after you enroll in medical school. There are many opportunities to receive special funding support.

Eligibility requirements vary from scholarship to scholarship. For example, some rewards may be based on premedical status or your year in medical school, specialty choice, academic achievement, service obligation, or affiliation with a specific organization.

These opportunities can be applied toward a range of costs, from tuition to travel for special activities like conferences.

Many family medicine conferences and meetings give students money to help them attend and broaden their professional experience.

Although not everyone qualifies for a large enough scholarship to cover the costs of medical school, there are likely several sources of funding that are available to support your interests.

Smaller scholarships that offer a couple of hundred dollars can especially add up over time if you apply to several. Anything that helps reduce your final student debt is very valuable because of the impact of interest capitalization.

Start your Search Online

Know where to search online. Websites such as Fastweb and the U.S. Department of Education contain scholarship databases that can help you find opportunities.

The Association of American Medical College (AAMC) maintains a loan repayment and scholarship database organized by state, and students are eligible for many of the opportunities listed.

Find Medical School Scholarships Locally

Your university’s counselors and state and local government agencies can help get you started when connecting with scholarship opportunities in your state or community.

Contact local hospitals and ask to speak to a staff member in the human resources department about scholarship opportunities.

Some hospitals and their foundations offer scholarships to medical students or financial aid in the form of tuition assistance in exchange for a specific number of years of employment after completion of residency.

Ask your Medical School

Check with the medical schools that you are applying to or are already attending, including the school’s office of minority affairs, for scholarship opportunities.

Request a financial aid packet from the medical school’s financial aid office and ask about scholarship opportunities that are unique to that school.

Many medical schools offer financial assistance to academically competitive medical students who show severe financial hardship.

Arrange for you and your family to speak directly to one of the school’s financial aid officers about your situation and the options available to you.
