Scholarship Opportunities for Visiting Medical Students


Kaweah Health's Department of Graduate Medical Education is now offering a scholarship to support visiting students who have shown a commitment to serve medically disadvantaged populations. KH serves healthcare needs of approximately 500,000 people across a diverse mix of races, ethnicities, income levels, education and health status. We hope that through this opportunity we can attract and mentor students that are interested in health equity, advocacy and community service. Preference will be given to students with ties or experience working with underserved rural communities. The scholarship is designed to give unique opportunities for career development, to provide support, and to defray the cost of travel and fees (i.e. application fees, rotation fees, etc.).

In addition to the exciting learning opportunities our clerkships offer, the scholarship awardees will also receive:

  • Scholarship in the amount of $1000
  • Support and guidance from resident and faculty mentors
  • Waived Rotation Fee


All 4th year medical students in good standing who demonstrate commitment for:

  • Student must be accepted to a Kaweah Health rotation
  • Community Service
  • Advocacy
  • Social Justice


Students will receive the application at the end of December from the Medical Student Coordinator. Awardees will be selected and notified by the second week of January 2025.
