AMA Physicians of Tomorrow

Our Physicians of Tomorrow Scholarship program distributes $10,000 tuition assistance scholarships to medical students approaching their final year of school. The AMA Foundation has had a long-standing tradition of supporting medical students. Since 1950, we have awarded over $61 million in scholarships. With 12 scholarship categories and a variety of focus areas, including serving those underrepresented in medicine, the AMA Foundation works to recognize a diverse cohort of medical students each year. All students may apply for the Physicians of Tomorrow scholarships, regardless of AMA membership status.
