2017 Wellcentive Medical Scholarship for Veterans

Wellcentive is proud to support future healthcare providers with our Medical Scholarship for Veterans. This annual scholarship will be awarded to one achievement-focused student intending to pursue a career in Medicine.

Inspired by one of our co-founders, a former United States Marine, Wellcentive stands in support of our armed forces who valiantly serve and protect our interests and citizens around the world, and especially those who wish to contribute to the field of Medicine. That’s why we are awarding $5,000 to one veteran pursuing a Doctor of Medicine or a Bachelor’s Degree in an Allied Health profession.

Medicine is a challenging field of study. We know that tomorrow’s doctors, nurses, researchers and care workers put in long hours of study every day. Our hope is that this scholarship will help remove some financial obstacles and allow a passionate student to dedicate their time to succeeding academically. We feel this is particularly important for veterans, who have already made such great sacrifices to help others.

To qualify for the Medical Scholarship for Veterans, you must be either an active or retired member of the military in any branch. Additionally, you must be enrolled or accepted at an accredited medical college or university program. Your essay should discuss why you decided to enter the medical field.

We are no longer accepting applications. A winner will be announced soon.

Notice: A check in the amount of $5,000 will be sent to the Financial Aid office of the attended university of the winning applicant.
