Under-represented Student Scholarship

ARMC Emergency Department is proud to offer a scholarship available to rotating medical students from a community Under-Represented in Medicine (URM). Eligible EM specialty bound medical students must be from a US medical school, demonstrate a financial hardship, and be a member of an URM minority community. The scholarship is open to current MS4 applying for an EM rotation at ARMC now through December 2022, and MS3 applying for a rotation April through December 2023.

This scholarship offers reimbursement for travel and housing for a month-long rotation up to $2500 per student. Interested students may apply via email by submitting a one paragraph personal statement explaining why you are deserving. Please send the email to with “scholarship application” in the subject line. You will be notified of our decision via email. The rotation will still be scheduled and processed by the normal VSLO/VSAS rotating student process.
