Scholarships and Bursaries for MD Students

The Faculty of Medicine offers a great number of scholarships and bursaries to students registered in  our MD program. Scholarships are awarded for academic achievements while bursaries are awarded based on financial need.

Upon admission, the Professional Entrance Scholarship is awarded to the top students who have achieved the highest WGPA.

We also offer Educational Bursaries which are awarded to students registered full time in the undergraduate medical education program at the Faculty of Medicine who have been approved for and have received their government financial aid.
