Scholarship Program

Investing in the future of osteopathic medicine in the Pacific Northwest begins by supporting today’s osteopathic medical student. The Foundation’s Scholarship Program helps defray some of the cost of osteopathic medical school. Scholarships are awarded primarily to students from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington who are committed to practicing primary care medicine in the Pacific Northwest.

Since the 1986-87 scholastic school year, the Foundation has awarded over 480 scholarships for a total of $1,541,150.
