Scholarships Available

Summer Scholarship

The University of Vermont offers a scholarship to the first 20 admitted and enrolled students who are beginning the program in the summer 2021 term. The scholarship will cover the cost of one course (3 or 4 credits). To receive the scholarship, you must successfully complete two or more summer courses. There is no need to apply; your advisor will notify you if you are eligible for the scholarship.

Summer University is well positioned to serve those students who are pursuing pre-med tracks as well as those who are starting to think about medical or health professional school later in their academic careers.  This additional course work will provide a competitive advantage to their medical school applications.

Fall Scholarship

Through the generous support of the Hillman Foundation and an anonymous donor, two scholarships  are available to students enrolled in UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program.
