LMSA Southwest scholarships for medical and premedical students in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado were developed to help alleviate the financial burden students face as a result of expenses related to medical education.
These include tuition, living expenses, standardized testing costs, and interview-related expenditures, among others.
While the number and amount of scholarship awards given out each year may vary, LMSA Southwest remains committed to supporting its members by either providing awards directly or connecting students to other funding opportunities.
