The Pisacano Leadership Foundation is pleased to announce that the application for the 2017 Pisacano Scholars Leadership program is now available online at www.pisacano.org. Only those students that are currently (2016-17) in their M3 year are eligible to apply for the 2017 award. Those students that are currently in their M2 and M1 year should review the scholarship to prepare for a future opportunity.
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 PLF 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 2017 may apply.
The PLF will award scholarships with a maximum value of $28,000 each for the 2017-18 academic year. One of our NEOMED graduates was selected as a scholar in 2015. While this is a national scholarship, please be encouraged that one of our graduates was selected for this prestigious award.
The application deadline is March 1, 2017, however I would encourage all interested students to review the application soon. There are a number of items that you must submit and it would be best to start the process sooner than later.
