One scholarship is available at each Texas medical school. Eligible applicants must be African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, or Native American (includes American Indian/Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander).
Students already attending medical school are not eligible. (Incoming MS1 only); Applicants must complete an online application, provide a letter of acceptance and write an essay, not to exceed 750 words, explaining how as a physician you would “improve the health of all Texans”.
