The Glens Falls Foundation Gilberto and Lennetta Pesquera Fund offers scholarship grants for medical school education on an annual basis to assist qualified men and women who have graduated from local area schools and have successfully completed the first year of medical school. The current amount for each grant is $4,000 per year. Four grants will be awarded for each academic year. These grants are restricted to tuition, fees, books and supplies. The payments are remitted directly to the educational institution for credit to the student's account.
All applications received on or before the due date will be referred to the Pesquera Scholarship Committee for evaluation. All applicants must request that the medical school send an offical copy of his/her current academic record/transcript directly to the Committee Chairman.
In addition to an official transcript, first-time applicants must submit the application form, the names and contact information for two personal references, and a brief paragraph stating the area(s) of medicine that interest them and their career goals.
Re-applicants must submit an official transcript, the application form, and a brief paragraph updating their area(s) of medical interest and career goals. They do not need to submit references.
