Our program is unique in that we track our students after they are awarded a scholarship to ensure they graduate from the medical program we helped fund. Scholarship awards are based primarily on financial need, potential for completing a health career program, sincerity of personal statement, and availability of scholarship funds for the applicant.The vast majority of funds are awarded to Virginia residents and those attending Virginia schools. There are few funds available for others.
Students will be notified by mail or email whether awarded or denied.
