The American University of St. Vincent School of Medicine offers a number of scholarships to recognize outstanding performance of applicants in various fields. Scholarships are granted as a credit to basic sciences tuition for semesters one through four. Scholarships are competitive and funds are very limited. Eligible students are encouraged to apply early in the semester. Applicants may download the respective scholarship application forms and submit them along with your admission application material to the US Office of Admissions in Dallas, Texas.

All scholarships require the submission of a scholarship application, outlining the relevant academic successes and challenges, community service, and professional achievements and recognitions. Applicants may submit an essay accompanied by supporting documents such as transcripts, letters of recommendation, certificates, awards and proof of eligibility as necessary. The Office of Admissions must receive all applications and supporting documentation at least thirty days prior to the start of classes. Please note that there is no guarantee of a scholarship and the number of scholarships awarded per semester may vary. All scholarship decisions are final and are not open to appeal.
