The Pisacano Leadership Foundation has opened the application for the 2022 Pisacano Scholars Leadership Program at www.pisacano.org.
The Pisacano Leadership Foundation (PLF) seeks to advance family medicine by providing well-educated, community-minded leaders in primary care. By aiding students who demonstrate the highest levels of commitment to family medicine, scholarship, leadership, character, interpersonal skills and community service, the PLF will promote the development of the future leaders in the specialty.
The Pisacano Scholars Leadership program is designed to provide educational programs, leadership training and funding to reimburse a portion of medical-school-related debt. Scholarships will be awarded to outstanding medical students for a four-year period.
Students who have made a commitment to the field of family medicine and who will enter their fourth year in medical school in the fall of 2022 may apply.
The PLF will award up to 10 scholarships with a maximum value of $28,000 each for the 2022-23 academic year.
The deadline for applications is May 1, 2022.
If you have questions, please contact Jane Ireland: firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-287-0948.
While it is a competitive scholarship opportunity, please note that two NEOMED students have received this prestigious award in recent years.
