Board of Governors M.D. Scholarship
The Board of Governors (BOG) M.D. Scholarship is awarded to entering first-year and second-year medical students who demonstrate financial need based on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) information and who complete 50 credit hours meeting satisfactory academic progress standards. The amount of the BOG M.D. Scholarship is based on the aggregate total Federal Direct Subsidized Loan that you borrowed at the undergraduate level, if any, and the percentage used of the 600% lifetime Federal Pell Grant eligibility limit.
