The Rubens J. Pamies, MD, Opportunity Fund Scholarship Application Is Open
March 1 - April 2
The SHPEP National Alumni Advisory Board is proud to announce that the Fourth Annual Rubens J. Pamies, MD, Opportunity Fund Scholarship application is open! The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 2, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET, and winners will be notified by Friday, April 16, 2021.
The SHPEP National Alumni Advisory Board established the scholarship fund in memory of the late Dr. Pamies, who was deeply committed to eradicating health disparities. He served as a mentor and role model for many who participated in the program; his tireless efforts helped to widen the pipeline for underrepresented minorities seeking to enter healthcare professions.
Every year, four (4) outstanding applicants are selected to receive a scholarship award of $500 from the scholarship fund, which awardees use to offset the costs of:
- Applying to professional and graduate schools.
- Admission test preparation courses.
- Travel for interviews.
- Professional development related conferences.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be an alumnus of the program (SHPEP, SMDEP, SMEP, or MMEP) and in the process of applying to a health professions school.
Applications will be evaluated based on demonstrated commitment to eliminating health disparities, past achievements, and financial need. Applicants are encouraged to share highlights from their personal and academic journey, and how they believe winning the scholarship will assist them in achieving both their educational and career goals.
Lastly, your support of this scholarship fund plays a vital role in providing financial assistance to those who have demonstrated financial need, and it is genuinely appreciated. Every dollar given is another door of opportunity opened for future healthcare professionals.
