Types of Financial Aid

External Grants and/or Scholarships: These are grants and scholarships awarded to students by outside agencies. Sallie Mae offers a Graduate School Scholarship Search tool that utilizes your field of study, skills, and interests to match students with available scholarships. To find other scholarships, search online on sites such as Niche, College Board Scholarship Search, and Scholly, and make sure to network! Reach out to local organizations and hospitals.

Private Student Loans: Private student loans are credit-based and available through multiple lending institutions, including Sallie Mae for U.S. Students and CIBC for Canadian Students, which offers loans specifically designed for medical students. US citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply. Detailed information about the Sallie Mae Medical School Loan can be found here.
