RUSM Launches New Scholarship Programs

Awards Recognize Academic Achievement, Community Service, and Other Attributes

08/13/14

RUSM today announced 12 new merit-based scholarship programs created to help qualified students fund their medical education.   

The scholarships recognize academic achievement, community service, and commitment to becoming a physician, and include both one-time awards and scholarships that are renewable for the duration of the student’s enrollment at RUSM. The Alumni Legacy Scholarship, for example, funds the full cost of first-semester tuition for selected students who have a work or volunteer history with one of RUSM’s more than 11,000 alumni. Other awards recognize qualified students from under-represented minorities and students pursuing medical degrees after working in other healthcare professions. 
 
“The looming shortage of physicians in the U.S. is an urgent problem. At RUSM, we are proud to play an important role in alleviating it. With these merit scholarships, we hope to provide qualified students with the financial boost they need to pursue their dreams and be part of the solution,” said Joseph Flaherty, M.D., RUSM dean and chancellor. “These awards are designed to identify students who are socially engaged and committed to carrying on the RUSM mission.”
