AMT awards scholarships annually to members attending undergraduate/graduate programs and to high school graduates pursuing medical technology, medical assisting, dental assisting or phlebotomy studies. Interested applicants must meet the following criteria: be a graduate of, or a senior in, an accredited high school (GED is acceptable) or a certified AMT member in good standing; and be enrolled in a college or university accredited by a regional accrediting commission. Course of study must lead to a career in one of the disciplines certified by AMT.
Applicants must provide two letters of reference and a minimum 500-word essay describing why they have chosen their career path. Each year, the AMT Scholarship Committee selects all recipients based on a thorough review of qualified applicants and approved guidelines and criteria. Recipients of a student scholarship must furnish proof of being either a student in good standing or enrolled for entrance into the fall program of a college or university, accredited by a regional accrediting commission.
