The 2023-24 Diversity in Medicine Scholarship

Meet the 2022-23 Diversity in Medicine Scholarship recipients

The 2023-24 application cycle is open, Monday, May 1st and closes Monday, June 12th.

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 2023-24. 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 2023-24 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.

Once the application cycle opens, you can apply using the button below.
