UniHealth Foundation Medical School Scholarship Program

As part of our Healthcare Workforce Development strategy, UniHealth Foundation has a medical school scholarship program. Each year, we invite ten California medical schools to nominate one of their current third- or fourth-year medical students who is interested in, and has shown a proven commitment to, working in a medically underserved community in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, or San Bernardino counties. Once approved, UniHealth awards that individual a one-time scholarship in the amount of $55,000 to be paid toward student loan debt.

We are pleased to present our 2019 Medical Student Scholarship recipients:
