Scholarship recipients share their experiences as UF medical students

Florida Medical Opportunity Scholarship

The University of Florida College of Medicine, in its commitment to helping the next generation of medical leaders reach their potential and fulfill their dreams, must ensure that that medical education is accessible and affordable for our students.

The Florida Medical Opportunity Scholars initiative extends UF’s Florida Opportunity Scholars program by supporting students from low-income backgrounds who are the first in their families to attend college. By providing financial support to graduates of the FOS program who are admitted to the College of Medicine, we can open the doors of a medical education to deserving students and ultimately impact the quality of and accessibility to medical care in our state and country.
