The 2021-22 Diversity in Medicine Scholarship

Meet the 2020-21 Diversity in Medicine Scholarship recipients

The 2021-2022 application cycle is now open.

The application deadline is Friday, June 18, 2021.

The Associated Medical Schools of New York is pleased to announce a medical school scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year. This fifth application cycle will now offer 21 scholarship awards.

The AMSNY Diversity in Medicine Scholarship has two goals:

1. Decrease medical students’ debt load and
2. Provide physicians for medically underserved areas in NYS.

The scholarship is a one-year $42,000 award for the academic year 2021-22. It is available to students who agree to work in an underserved area in New York State upon completion of their medical education. Students who are currently in or have completed an AMSNY post-baccalaureate program, are domiciled in NY, and will be in medical school for the 2021-22 academic year are eligible to apply.

The scholarship is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation and the NYS Legislature and due to the strong advocacy of members of the NYS Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian Legislative Caucus.

To apply, please click on the red button below. Applications must be submitted by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 18, 2021.
