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, at $42,000 per year, is available to those students who have completed an AMSNY post-baccalaureate program and who agree to work in an underserved area in NYS upon completion of their medical education.

The scholarship is made possible thanks to support from The New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, and particularly Majority Leader Peoples-Stokes, Assemblymember Blake, and the New York State Department of Health.
