Family Medicine Midwest Scholarship Donation Information


Student Scholarships Fuel Family Medicine Midwest

Family Medicine Midwest provides vital scholarship support for students, including free registration, and financial support towards travel and hotel expenses. For most of our student attendees, these scholarships make it possible for them to attend, and be inspired by an event they would have otherwise missed. Scholarships are tailored to the travel needs of students, depending on the location of their medical school. Students at any allopathic or osteopathic medical school in any of the Family Medicine Midwest 12 states are eligible for scholarships support.

By tracking the Match results we have established a track record of success: 

  • Of the 41 scholarship attendees from FM Midwest 2012 who graduated in 2013, 39 matched into family medicine residency programs.

  • 43 out of 60 (72%) of FMM scholarship students matched into family medicine in 2019, with 26 in the Midwest!

Family Medicine is an invaluable experience where students, residents, physicians and faculty come together to share both their knowledge and their passion for their calling. Mollie, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine

 A great opportunity for students to enhance their education and network in a relaxed and inviting environment. John Heafner, St. Louis University School of Medicine

It still amazes me the number of friends I have made along the way. I enjoyed seeing work that my peers have done to make a difference in the lives of their patients and communities. I am glad to be joining a field of medicine that really cares and supports its students and future colleagues.  Kristin, University of Wisconsin
