There are many School of Medicine scholarship opportunities available for currently enrolled and incoming medical students for the upcoming academic year. Recipients of the Kansas Medical Student Loan (KMSL), National Health Service Corp Scholarship, Indian Health Service Scholarship, military scholarship or students enrolled in a combined degree program are ineligible for School of Medicine scholarships.
Generally, two types of scholarships exist: Those for which you apply directly to the sponsoring agency and scholarships that are awarded by the School of Medicine Scholarship Committee. Scholarship awards that are determined by the Office of Cultural Enhancement and Diversity will be based on the School of Medicine scholarship application and reviewed by the Scholarship Committee as well.
School of Medicine scholarships are generally non-renewable and may be based on financial need and/or merit as well as responses to the questions on the application. Please be aware that only those who complete the School of Medicine scholarship application will be considered for a scholarship, and you must reapply each year.
For all currently enrolled students, the deadline for completion of the scholarship application is Monday, February 2, 2015. All incoming students will receive an e-mail with a specific deadline date based on their date of acceptance. Applications received after specified deadlines will not be considered.
