Visiting Student Diversity Scholarship Program

The Department of Medical Education developed the Diversity Scholarship Award Program to help advance MaineHealth’s mission to actively pursue and welcome a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds. We believe this program will improve the academic environment, drive innovation and attract leadership – ultimately, enhancing our ability to train future health care professionals to provide high quality, socially responsible and equitable care to all patients and their families.

Each academic year, MMC’s Department of Medical Education offers $2,000 scholarship awards for those applying to advanced electives. This scholarship award may be applied towards travel, housing, and incidental expenses related to a monthlong visiting rotation. Scholarship recipients are also eligible for discounted lodging, with our student housing partner, during the rotation.
