APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 15
You may apply for an institutional scholarship even if you do not apply for a loan. We provide one single application to cover all scholarships offered through the UAMS College of Medicine. Our Scholarship Application will be used by the College of Medicine Scholarship Committee to award institutional scholarships.
Complete the application in as much detail as you possible, especially the sections allowing you to list your community service and volunteerism. Do not attach additional pages or resumes. These will not be forwarded to the committee for review.
The College of Medicine Scholarship Committee will meet routinely during the winter and spring. Most scholarships for entering freshmen students will be awarded by mid-May for the following academic year, and the scholarships for upperclassmen will be awarded after final grades for the current year become available.
If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will be notified by letter. You must also complete the student and parental sections of the FAFSA in order to be considered for need-based scholarships. Not all scholarships are based on need, though; some are based on academic achievement, some on volunteer experience, some are even based on your home county.
A complete listing and description of our institutional scholarships can be found in the Student Financial Aid section of the College of Medicine Catalog. The deadline for the RECEIPT of your Scholarship Application in the Office of Medical Student Admissions is MAY 15.
