This scholarship is an important reminder that each and every person who has sustained a traumatic brain injury is an individual, not just a statistic. Today many industries place profits over safety, such as the trucking and motor vehicle industry, construction industry, negligent doctors, and sports organizations, both professional and school or community-based. We lose sight of the full impact these injuries have on both the individual and family. A life can be changed in an instant.
Applicants must submit the following items:
- A completed application,
- A copy of a current college academic transcript or proof of acceptance and registration at an accredited college or university,
- A copy of proof of accident, such as police report, or some other form of proof of the traumatic event,
- Proof of a traumatic brain injury from a narrative medical report or hospital record,
- An essay of not more than three pages describing the traumatic event, your injury, and how you have worked to overcome your injury while pursuing an education.etc.,)
- Proof of legal Residency in the U.S. (i.e. Birth certificate, passport, permanent resident card

Who can apply?
Only professional students enrolled full-time for the 2019-2020 year and in good academic standing are eligible (yes, we actually call your school and check.) That means medicine, osteopathy, podiatry, dentistry, law, pharmacy, optometry, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, CRNA, veterinarian. We will also consider physical therapy and occupational therapy students if the program leads to a doctorate degree. Yes, I know the post title says “medical school scholarship” and most of our applicants and winners are working toward MD and DO degrees, but those other degrees are all eligible.
No online schools (brick and mortar only.)
No residents. Even if you’re a dental resident paying tuition. Sorry. Students only.
You do not need to be a US resident or even be attending a school in the US, but you MUST HAVE A US SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.
As we are not a registered charity, the winners of the top three prizes will be required to fill out a W-9 for us and we will issue them a 1099 and report the income to the IRS. Consider it to be fully taxable income. The good news is your tax bracket is almost surely dramatically lower than ours, allowing us to give more and you to receive more on an after-tax basis.
