The UTRGV School of Medicine’s Scholarship Program is a vital financial resource that assists deserving medical students pay for their education. Scholarships are awarded based on need, merit, or a combination of the two. Scholarships do not have to be repaid, but students must be in “good standing” in order to receive them. At the School of Medicine, “good standing” equates to good academics and professionalism. If a student is required to repeat a year, they are not in good standing for scholarship consideration and therefore, ineligible to receive a scholarship for the repeating year. However, the scholarship (if available) can be reinstated once the student is in “good standing” and promoted.

Regarding Scholarship opportunities below are some links that students may apply to.
