AMWA MCAT Scholarship

AMWA is offering three scholarships to cover the complete cost of MCAT registration ($320 each). AMWA is well aware of the very expensive costs associated with registering and preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). As the year of 2020 continues to be rife with hardship for so many Americans, we believe that the cost of the MCAT exam should not be an added obstacle that premedical students must overcome to realize their career goals. The MCAT Scholarship will be awarded to a low-income and URM student.

The application is due by December 31st, 2020 at 11:59 PM PT. You must be a nationally registered AMWA member to qualify. Please direct all questions to

Premedical Membership Fee Waivers

We know that the cost of joining professional organizations and applying to medical schools can add up. In an effort to be more inclusive and break down barriers to pursuing medicine and membership in organizations such as AMWA, we are excited to announce that the National Premedical Division will be awarding six (6) scholarships ($35.00 value per person) to waive the cost of national membership in AMWA.  Awardees will be chosen based on need as well as the embodiment of the goals of AMWA.

Throughout our 105-year history, AMWA has been dedicated to a dual mission: advancing women in medicine and promoting women’s health. AMWA continues to encourage the promising young medical professionals of tomorrow through our many awards, grants, and scholarship programs. We are proud to use our resources to make a difference in the lives of women every day by providing grants to AMWA student branches, supporting physicians-in-training overseas, and rewarding students for outstanding service and merit.

We invite you to become a part of this movement.  We are confident that the strength of our collective voice will be heard as we advocate for gender parity for women in medicine. Click here to apply for a membership fee waiver or email with any questions!
