Students often assume that loans are the only financing option for medical school. While loans are indeed the primary funding source, scholarships are available from a number of sources to reduce or, in some cases, obviate educational debt altogether. AMS has diligently worked to increase our own scholarship funding. Through the efforts of our Office of Advancement and the AMS initiative to dedicate a portion of tuition revenue to scholarship funding, we are able to offer a generous scholarship program to medical students. This section describes a variety of scholarships that are available to AMS students.
