Medical Scholarships

If you are interested in medical school, you’re probably well aware that difficult classes lay ahead...and years of schooling. The first four years are just the beginning: After undergrad, you still have four more. Even if you can get through your undergraduate years debt-free, medical school bills are still in your future.

Fortunately, financial aid is readily available to med students. Most students cannot afford to pay for entire medical programs on their own, and scholarship providers know this. Whether offered by schools, local organizations or personal providers, numerous medical scholarships are awarded to students who need financial aid to pursue their goals. Medical scholarships aren’t restricted to the general medical practitioners, either. Psychiatrists, dentists, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists and others can all take advantage of the medical scholarships available to students across the nation.

The lives of students enrolled in medical programs may not be as cute and peppy as they appear on "Scrubs" but they can at least be affordable. Conduct a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com to find scholarships based on major and additional criteria. While you’re there, you can also check out information about the costs and financial aid available at your schools of interest.

The competition at medical schools may be tough but don't give up before you start by letting your finances or mental hang-ups hold you back. Once you get through the weed-out classes...well, I guess it’s still hard, but your future career will be worth it!
