Scholarship, Grant & Fellowship Opportunities

Admitted Students: Institutional Scholarship & Grant Opportunities

Applicants to the MD program at the Feinberg School of Medicine may be eligible for merit scholarships through the Admissions Office and/or need-based grant funding through the Chicago Office of Financial Aid. All students admitted to the MD program are automatically considered for merit scholarships; no application is required.

Admitted students that complete financial aid applications by the deadline will be considered for need-based grants. The Office of Admissions will send out notifications of merit scholarships in mid to late March. The Chicago Financial Aid Office will send out financial aid offer letter showing eligibility for need based grant funds and student loans on a rolling basis in mid-March.
