Do you dream of being a doctor but medical school seems out of reach?

If you have the brains, passion and dedication to pursue it, a career in medicine is within your grasp.

The Cumming School of Medicine has designed the new Pathways to Medicine Scholarship program to support the enrolment and success of future MD students from traditionally under-represented groups throughout Alberta.

The scholarship includes tuition support for your choice of University of Calgary undergraduate program, a relocation allowance if you need it, supports a paid summer internship, and connects you with mentors from the faculty, student body and community. When you complete your undergraduate degree you are guaranteed admission (assuming certain criteria are met) into the university’s MD program.

If you’re a graduating high school student from anywhere in Alberta and you want to help people live healthier lives, your pathway to medicine could start right now.

Apply to the University of Calgary by March 1, 2016

Five students will receive:

  • Tuition and fees: $5,000/year (for four years)
  • Relocation allowance: up to $1,000
  • Summer internship: $6,000 (in third year)
