Maine Medical Center – Diversity Scholarship Award Program
Deadline: Visit site for more information
The Department of Medical Education developed the Diversity Scholarship Award Program to help advance MaineHealth’s mission to actively pursue, and welcome a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds. We believe with this program, we will improve the academic environment, drive innovation, and attract leadership – ultimately, enhancing our ability to train future medical providers to provide high quality, socially responsible, and equitable care to all patients and their families.
MMC’s Department of Medical Education offers eight $500 scholarship awards per academic year for those applying to advanced electives with identities and backgrounds that are considered underrepresented in medicine. The AAMC has previously defined underrepresented in medicine as “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.” The Department of Medical Education endeavors to define diversity broadly. Other examples may include differently abled, economically disadvantaged, or LGBTQ+ students.
This scholarship award may be applied towards travel, housing, and incidental expenses related to a month long visiting rotation.
