The MSU Office of Medical Student Financial Aid helps students in the medical colleges to obtain and manage various forms of financial assistance. They also provide information about budgeting, housing, insurance, and other important resources to help students plan for and finance their medical education.
In addition, MSUCOM has developed a growing array of scholarships and loans to address the critical issue of financial stress among our students. These scholarships and loans vary in the amount of funding, criteria, timing, and focus, all of which are established by the donors when the initial agreements are signed.
Applying for MSUCOM Scholarships
Background information including criteria, amount of the awards and application processes for all MSUCOM scholarships and loans are available on our Web site.
Interested MSUCOM students need to read carefully about each scholarship or loan, assess the criteria, provide all requested application materials, and get their applications in on time.

How Scholarships Are Awarded
The MSUCOM Scholarship Committee meets regularly to review applications, assess the ability of applicants relative to the criteria, and award scholarships and loans. All information used in the decision-making process — which may include written applications, interviews, financial need, scholastic achievement, etc. — is held in strict confidence.
