The Warren Alpert Medical School Scholarship Funds
The Warren Alpert Medical School is deeply grateful to the thousands of donors who offer generous scholarship support to our medical students. Through a combination of endowment income, annual gifts, a percentage of tuition revenue, and grants from the federal government, AMS was able to offer over $6 million dollars in institutional scholarship funds to 50% of all aid recipients. The average scholarship award in 2018-19 year was approximately $33,730.
Institutional Need-Based Scholarships
The financial aid office awards scholarships from the institution to students on the basis of financial need. A student may be considered for this type of scholarship by applying as an institutional aid applicant. Please review the application page for details about applying for institutional need-based scholarship funding.
Institutional Merit-Based Scholarships
Tuition scholarships are awarded to AMS MD/PhD students that are not based on need. In addition, the Office of Admission offers merit scholarships based on criteria other than need. All other financial aid at The Warren Alpert Medical School is awarded on the basis of financial need.
