Students who belong to an underrepresented minority group and engaged in medical or healthcare professionals have an extraordinary chance to apply for the “Alliant Health Solutions/NMF Alzheimer’s or Related Dementia Care Scholarship”. The program is created by the National Medical Fellowships to assist needy students in their higher education.
The awards are designed to let students acquire more valuable and enhanced learning experience in their field of study. The organization ensures that no talented and hard-working student must face any kind of financial hurdles in their way of achieving higher and quality education.
National Medical Fellowships is one of America’s first diversity organizations, which was founded in 1946. NMF remains the only national organization solely dedicated to providing scholarships to medical and health professions students in all groups underrepresented in healthcare. It is supported by a nationwide network of Alumni who serve tens of millions of patients annually.
