Pathways To Medicine Scholarship For College Students In Canada 2019


 

The Cumming School of Medicine has designed the new Pathways to Medicine Scholarship program to support the enrollment and success of future MD students from traditionally under-represented groups throughout Alberta.

The Pathways to Medicine Scholarship program is designed for graduating high school students with an explicit interest in pursuing a career in medicine.

The scholarship is modeled on similar programs in the United States, and is rooted in the results of a faculty-wide survey in 2014 in which ‘supporting access to under-represented populations (of low socioeconomic status, Indigenous ancestry, and/or from a rural community)’ was ranked as a high priority for education.

SCHOLARSHIP BENEFITS

The scholarship includes tuition support for your choice of University of Calgary undergraduate program, a relocation allowance if you need it, supports a paid summer internship, and connects you with mentors from the faculty, student body and community.

 

When you complete your undergraduate degree you are guaranteed admission (assuming certain criteria are met) into the university’s MD program.

If you’re a graduating high school student from anywhere in Alberta and you want to help people live healthier lives, your pathway to medicine could start right now.

Scholarship recipients will also have:

HOW MANY SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE?

Five (5) scholarships.

DURATION OF AWARD

The award is tenable for the entire duration of your undergraduate degree in Canada.

IS SCHOLARSHIP ANNUAL?

Pathways To Medicine Scholarship is awarded yearly to domestic and international high school leavers and college students resident in Canada. You are strongly advised to visit this website regularly to see more scholarship opportunities.
