Medical Related Scholarships
Minority Senior Scholarship Program (MSSP) is accepting applications for our 2018 cohort! The MSSP is an opportunity for fourth year medical students applying to pediatrics to rotate at Children’s National in Washington DC and gain exposure to academic pediatrics at a large, free standing children’s hospital. Our scholars receive supplemental mentorship, networking opportunities with current residents, as well as a stipend to offset the costs of travel and housing.
The Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) established in 2010 is supported by the UCSF School of Medicine and was established to encourage fourth year medical students who are underrepresented in medicine (UIM) or are interested in working with underserved populations to apply for a clinical elective in Pediatrics or other specialties at UCSF. The program provides financial assistance to awardees. The deadline is September 1st, 2018.
The scholarship program provides up to $2,000 and is designed to:
Ø Expose fourth year medical students who are underrepresented in medicine or interested in working with underserved populations to an academic training program in Pediatrics
Ø Promote student interest in applying to a Pediatric academic residency training program
Ø Provide faculty and housestaff mentorship during the clinical elective experience
