SMGF is committed to supporting the next generation of healthcare leaders. Unfortunately, many driven students are certain they want to pursue a career in medicine, only to realize the journey to get there is too expensive. That’s why SMGF is proud to offer the SMGF Next Generation Scholarship program. Through scholarships up to $5,000, SMGF hopes to relieve some of the financial burden and allow students pursuing healthcare careers to focus on the ambitious paths ahead of them.
“I am so grateful to the Foundation for this scholarship. Since I was a child, it has been my life dream to be a neurosurgeon, like Ben Carson. This is the first step in my future that is truly life-changing,” explained Vincent, SMGF Next Generation Scholarship recipient.
Scholarships are available to students with a primary residence in New Jersey or Oregon who are enrolled in an accredited college in the United States. Applicants must have a strong academic standing and pursue a career in healthcare. All applications are reviewed based on the goals of the individual, the unique story of challenge and the financial burden involved.
Since 2014 SMGF has awarded more than $260,000 in scholarships to support the next generation of healthcare professionals.
The deadline for 2019 applications had passed, but please check back in March 2020 to apply.
