The Alumni Association Community Scholarship (AACS) is a paying-it-forward scholarship designed to assist junior and senior medical students who are actively involved in their class, the school, or the broader community by providing them with a 50% tuition and fees scholarship for one academic year. Awarded at the beginning of each academic year*, the AACS scholarship aims to encourage students to positively impact their sphere of influence during and after their academic lives. Dr. Schumacher ’62 and other generous alumni have donated money and time to invest in your future. They are interested in your success as a physician and an individual. By participating in this scholarship you will have the opportunity to benefit from mentorship of an alumnus and later, to follow their example. For the 2020/21 academic year, ten scholarships will be available, with the potential for renewal if the applicant is a junior.
