Mentoring Minorities in Medicine Scholarship

Our Goal:

Millennials In Medicine is looking to raise a minimum of $5,000 to contribute to the M3 Scholarship. 100% of the donations will be used towards the scholarship recipient's MCAT, MCAT prep course, and medical school application feeds. Millennials In Medicine will be matching the amount of funds raised over the first 30 days of this campaign. 

Growing up Black in America often comes with various challenges. Our communities experience disparities from birth in the areas of health, education, access to vital resources, and employment to name the least. This disparity is very apparent in the medical field. Out of all the physicians in the U.S., a mere 5% identify as African-American or Black. It is our duty as physicians to actively work towards increasing this number. It is well-known that several underrepresented minority students do not have the luxury of preparing for medical school with the same resources, guidance or support as their non-minority counterparts. This scholarship was designed to alleviate the financial burdens associated with the application process while encouraging minority pre-medical students to continue striving towards a career in medicine. The scholarship recipient will be selected by a committee of resident and attending physicians after completing all requirements of the application process. The recipient will also be connected with medical student and physician mentors based on speciality interest and other commonalities. 

No amount or contribution is too little! Thank you for your consideration, selfless contributions, and sharing of this initiative with your networks - we are eternally grateful!
