Medical Students Scholarship

If you are a medical student interested in learning more about the specialty of preventive medicine, attending ACPM’s annual conference is a must!

These scholarships are made possible through the generosity of ACPM members who have donated specifically to help support and nurture the next generation of preventive medicine physicians.

  • Complete the Medical Student Scholarship application.
  • Submit a brief cover letter with a personal statement that highlights what participation in the ACPM annual conference means to you.
