2018 Pisacano Scholars Leadership program

The Pisacano Leadership Foundation has announced that the application for the 2018 Pisacano Scholars Leadership program is now available online.

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 2018 may apply. The PLF will award scholarships with a maximum value of $28,000 each for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Applications must be received by March 1, 2018 to be considered.
