Through its scholarship program, PCF works to provide medical school scholarships and stipends to help alleviate the ﬁnancial pressure of students who were raised in Los Angeles County, with the hope that they will return to serve their communities upon completing their residency. Over the past years, PCF has awarded over $100,000 to deserving candidates, each scholarship ranging from $1,000-$5,000. In addition, PCF works with members of the Los Angeles County Medical Association to mentor a new cadre of community-based physicians poised to deliver high-quality health care in areas with significant gaps in access and services.
In order to apply for the Patient Care Foundation Scholarship Award, you must meet all the following criteria:
• Have been raised in a medically-underserved area, as designated by the US HRSA
• Must be currently enrolled in and attending an accredited medical school in the United States.
Awardees must commit to providing an annual update to the Patient Care Foundation about their progress in medical school.
