National Medical Fellowships (NMF) recognizes that medical students may experience unexpected financial hardships during their medical education, particularly during these stressful and unprecedented times. NMF may be able to provide some financial relief and some piece of mind through the NMF Emergency Scholarship Fund.
NMF understands the importance of medical students maintaining their financial stability during the critical semesters of medical school so that they can focus on their future – a future of service to their communities and the nation as a whole. The Emergency Scholarship Fund (ESF), originally founded in 2008, provides financial assistance to 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year underrepresented minority medical students who are experiencing a financial crisis that prevents them from continuing their medical education or creates a major obstacle in achieving their medical education goals.
ESF Awards are non-renewable scholarships and applicants cannot be receiving another NMF Scholarship at the time of application. Awards typically ranges from $2,000-$5,000.
