To apply, you must have completed the appropriate undergraduate education and be currently pursuing an advanced degree in a medical-related field, with the exception of nurses, who may apply as undergraduates.

This scholarship will not be awarded for more than four (4) years to any one recipient. Recipients will be asked to submit a renewal application and transcripts by February of each year to continue scholarship funding.
