Medical Student Scholarship Fund

Medical students studyingThrough the William E. Dochterman Scholarship Fund, the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society provides scholarships to deserving medical school students who have graduated from a high school in El Dorado, Sacramento, or Yolo counties.

To be eligible to apply for a grant, students must have graduated from a high school in El Dorado, Sacramento or Yolo counties, and must be enrolled in an accredited American medical school on a full-time basis (12 units or more). This grant does not apply to summer enrollment or to correspondence schools.

Applications are accepted annually and must be received by July 1.  Scholarships are awarded in September of the same year. Applications are evaluated primarily on the basis of financial need and academic achievement. Financial data will be analyzed according to family/student resources and household size. Given limited funds, not all eligible applicants will be recipients.

Letters of reference and transcripts may be mailed separately, but must be received by the July 1 deadline. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
