Millions of Scholarships, personalized results
Military medical school scholarships exist to help eligible students earn a medical degree and graduate with less debt. According to AACOM, the average scholarship amount reported by 2018 graduates is $67,266. Award amounts vary by program, medical specialty and other factors.
One kind enables students to attend the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences tuition free. USUHS is a military school of medicine that accepts some civilian students too. As a USUHS student, you immerse in the active duty military life style right away.
In return for tuition, a military salary, and housing allowance you must serve once you graduate. You become an active service member for seven years or fulfill your service as a General Medical Officer (GMO) instead.
Another kind is a Health Professions Scholarship Program. HPSP selectees are officers in the Ready Reserves who attend accredited civilian schools. They may have some scheduled trainings but serve their branch later on.
The U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force offer these scholarships and the benefits are the same across all three Services. Usually the award pays full tuition and fees (not housing), a generous monthly stipend and in some cases a sign on bonus.
In return, you sign a military service commitment. You may serve as a commissioned Officer when you graduate. The number of years you have to serve varies but relates to how many years you receive the funding.
The funds which go to the school directly are for industry accredited colleges and universities in the United States, Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico.
