The Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Dr. Noyes L. Avery, Jr. & Ann E. Avery Scholarship is offered to a full time student from Kent County (three year minimum) attending the University of Michigan for a medical doctor degree (undergraduate or graduate level). Applicants must demonstrate financial need and have a 3.0 GPA. Scholarship recipients are selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation (GRCF) and applicants follow the GRCF process. Applications run from December until the due date, and dollar amounts will vary.
By connecting people, their passions and our region’s resources, Grand Rapids Community Foundation and our partners work toward an inclusive and equitable West Michigan. Over the last century, the Community Foundation has used the tools of philanthropy to respond to community needs. Today, to carry out our North Star and overcome racial, social and economic inequities, we must respond with intention and care. Our partners inspire, motivate and guide our work.
