Are you a Pennsylvania resident in Lycoming County? Are you enrolled fulltime in an allopathic or osteopathic medical school anywhere in the United States? If you answered “yes” to both of those, then you will definitely want to apply to the Lycoming County Medical Society Scholarship Fund for a chance to win a $3,000 award to help you finance your education on your long journey to becoming a doctor.
How do you apply? Fill out an application form and obtain two letters of reference. They may be from anyone so long as they are not from members of your family. Next, get a letter on school letterhead verifying your full time enrollment status (it does not matter what year you are in, and you do not need to be attending school in Pennsylvania). You will then need to type up a one page essay describing your ambitions in the medical profession and what you will be able to contribute. Talk about why you decided to become a physician. The deadline for this competition is September 30th. If you have any additional questions, you can get in touch directly with the Lycoming County Medical Society.
