Do you all know of any non-need-based scholarships that are available to medical students? I’m not starting school until next year (deferred) and figure I’ll have lots of time this year to apply for stuff like this, if I can find it.
It is a good idea to check (early on) with your financial aid office.
I received a 2k per year scholarship for ‘nontraditional women medical students’ which I probably qualified for on more counts than I care to admit. But I didn’t know anything about it until I specifically asked the advisor if any such aid was available – she then checked into it and *presto*.
My husband and I are setting up a scholarship at my alma mater, Ohio State, for students entering medical school with a GED or correspondance high school diploma.
Thanks for the suggestions. I checked out fastweb and a couple of other internet scholarship sites, but there didn’t seem to be much.
I’m planning to call the financial aid office soon, but I figured I would wait until October or so when things should slow down a bit for them. I’m sure all the new students are keeping them busy right now!
