Awards, Scholarships, and Fellowships
AMWA’s scholarship and loan program began in 1925 at the Annual Meeting in Atlantic City with two gifts, one of $1000, and one of $500. This became the start of the Scholarship Fund. Since then, AMWA has continued every year to support medical students who have been nominated by the association!
All AMWA Medical Student Members are invited to apply for the following awards and grants.
Contact our Awards Chair with any questions.
