Selection process
Current students and incoming accepted applicants to the School of Medicine are eligible to receive institutional scholarship awards.  Our Scholarship Committee composed of dedicated faculty and staff members of the school makes the award decisions annually.  The work of the Committee is housed in the division of Medical Student Services.  The committee meets three to four times each year to select scholarship recipients based on their academic excellence, ability to add to the diversity and distinction of the student body, and financial need.  Some scholarship awards are made for all four years of medical school, but many scholarships are not automatically renewable.  Recipients must qualify each year.
