The North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians Foundation provides scholarships of up to $5,000.00 to North Carolina medical students considering careers as family physicians. All applications are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, notifications to scholarship recipients and disbursements will be made in the fall.
All scholarship applications received by the noted deadline will be reviewed by the Scholarship review committee. Awardees will be notified and required to confirm acceptance with NCAFP staff. Awardees will be responsible for having their institution provide a letter indicating enrollment and academic status and the student will complete and return a Scholarship Agreement. Once required documents are received scholarship funds will be requested and issued to the student.
If you are a previous scholarship recipient or have applied before, you are eligible to reapply. If you have any questions regarding this scholarship program, please contact Perry Price @ the NCAFP via telephone at (919) 980-5357 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
