Need-based scholarships & Grants

Need-based scholarships and grants are awarded to individual medicine and pharmacy students at NEOMED who demonstrate a financial need. These are considered a source of “gift-aid” because they are a source of free money – financial aid that doesn’t have to be paid back.

To be considered for these need-based scholarships and grants, students must:

  • Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Application
  • Complete the NEOMED Campus-Based Aid Application
  • Complete the required NEOMED forms
