Investing in the future of osteopathic medicine in the Pacific Northwest begins by supporting today’s osteopathic medical students. The Foundation’s Scholarship Program helps defray some of the cost of osteopathic medical school tuition.

Scholarships are awarded to students who best demonstrate their commitment to practicing osteopathic medicine in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Since the 1986-87 scholastic school year, the Foundation has awarded over 570 scholarships in support of students from the Northwest.

Here is a quote from Paula Archer, a medical school student from Alaska:
“This scholarship has helped lighten my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. It also allows me the freedom to think of what I truly enjoy pursuing as a practice rather than what will make me the most money. I hope one day I will be able to students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
