The Medical University Women's Club is beginning the process of identifying MUSC's most deserving students for its annual scholarships.
All full-time students in their second or subsequent years from any of the six MUSC colleges are eligible to apply for these annual scholarships. Previous applicants may reapply. The women's club has awarded $10,000 to $15,000 in previous years.
Applications are available through the Volunteer Services Office (first floor of the Children's Hospital, next to the gift shop). Alternatively, applicants may download the application at http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/womensclub/scholarship.htm.
The deadline for submission of applications online or at the Volunteer Services Office is 4 p.m., Tuesday,
The scholarship committee of the Medical University Women's Club will review the applications and select scholarship recipients based on financial need, academic achievement, and community and university service. An applicant's transcript, personal statement and letter of recommendation from an MUSC faculty member are required and are an important part of each application.
Scholarship recipients will be notified by Sept. 7 and recognized on Sept. 12 at the women's club annual membership coffee.
