Diversity scholarships: Essays should provide a diversity self-description and explain how an applicant's diversity has been expressed in one or more of the areas listed above.
In addition, applicants should outline how they envision contributing to and enhancing the diversity of the student body and campus community, and how these experiences will enrich the applicant's abilities as a physician.
Multiple awards will be made in both scholarship categories, beginning at the $5,000 level.
