This scholarship is awarded entirely on merit, regardless of financial need, and illustrates our belief in your ability and determination to become an MD. Every student attending WAUSM will receive a scholarship of $22,825, which covers your full tuition for the first semester of medical school.

All students who do not have adequate health insurance at the time of matriculation will be required to buy the WAUSM student health insurance plan provided by Cigna.
