The 2014 Sherry R. Arnstein Minority Student Scholarship Program is now accepting applications. The scholarship program, named after former AACOM Executive Director Sherry R. Arnstein, recognizes underrepresented minority students at AACOM's member colleges of osteopathic medicine. Each year, awards are given to one newly accepted student and one continuing student.
To be eligible, an applicant must be a member of an underrepresented minority group, including African-American; Native American (American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian); mainland Puerto Rican; or Hispanic. The applicant must also be either currently enrolled in his or her first, second or third year at an AACOM member college, or have been accepted and planning to matriculate at an AACOM member college. All applicants must be in good academic standing. Previous Arnstein Scholarship awardees are ineligible.
