Scholarships / Financial Aid
UNLV School of Medicine is committed to making medical education affordable. We want students to select a specialty based on their desire to care for patients not because of student debt. Thanks to generous donors, UNLV School of Medicine can offer full, four-year tuition scholarships for every student in its charter class, and 40 percent of the students in each subsequent class through 2020.
The AMCAS and Secondary Application will serve as the charter class tuition scholarship application. Students will receive additional scholarship information with the admissions decision letter.
All students will be required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for tuition scholarship disbursement. Students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA during the medical school application process. Admitted students that don't have a FAFSA will be required to complete one within 10 days of receiving their admissions letter.
