There is an urgent need for more pre-med and medical school students. By 2030, the U.S. will face a shortage of doctors that could reach 120,000. This shortage of doctors is good news for students who want to go to medical school. Schools are now offering more scholarships and grants to pay your college tuition. Some schools even offer free tuition. New York University (NYU) has started paying full tuition for medical school students. Kaiser Medical school has also. Whether you are able to find a free med school program or not, there are ways to have your college tuition paid. Our Scholarship Directory has a list of scholarships for medical students to help pay for schooling — including a pre-med bachelor’s degree all the way up to graduate courses. These scholarships for doctors are a great place to start looking for ways to help fund your medical career.
