Osteopathic medical school students currently in their first, second or third year can apply for tuition scholarships between $5,000 and $20,000. The online application process is on the Foundation website: https://www.nwosteo.org/what-we-do/scholarship/
The application process had been simplified for the 2020-2021 academic year. Applicants need only submit one letter of recommendation, plus two short essays and one “selfie-style” video introducing themselves to the selection team. Complete instructions, as well as a 4-minute instructional video, are available at https://www.nwosteo.org/what-we-do/scholarship/
The purpose of this program is to provide tuition scholarships to those osteopathic medical school students that we believe are most likely to:
- Practice in the Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon or Washington) upon completion of their residency program, fellowships, etc.
- Practice medicine following the Principles of Osteopathic Medicine.
- Contribute to their community beyond the practice of medicine.
Applications will be accepted between February 29 and April 15.
