In addition to Government and ISMMS scholarships and loan programs to which students may apply, the Office of Enrollment Services has compiled a list of more than 100 private scholarships and government loan forgiveness programs (50+ for Graduate Programs and 50+ for Medical Program), from outside organizations that provide scholarship/grant opportunities to ISMMS students. The Icahn School of Medicine is not directly associated with any of these organizations; however we strongly urge all students to review this list of private scholarships and government forgiveness loan programs, and apply to those for which you appear eligible. This list was updated in September, 2015 with accurate links, deadlines and eligibility criteria.
The lists are sorted by deadline, and the second column refers to what type of student is eligible to apply. 25% of the scholarships are available to ALL students, which means both international and domestic students may apply. 6% of the scholarships are available only to US citizens. 34% of the scholarship list is for designated religious or ethnic backgrounds. 20% of the scholarships are for students who are from a specific State from the US; and the remaining 15% have various unique designated applicant eligibility criteria. Scholarships previously awarded to students of ISMMS are marked with an asterisk.
Each private scholarship and government loan has unique DEADLINES, which vary throughout 12 months of the year. The financial aid office will periodically send out deadline reminders. You are encouraged to apply to several private scholarships with the hope of being awarded one or two scholarships.
