To apply, please submit to Colleen Magne, Business Manager of the Vermont Medical Society: (1) a CV/resume, (2) a cover letter describing your commitment to practice medicine in Vermont and to care for Vermonters, (3) the signed commitment form, and (4) a copy of your current student loan obligations/educational debt. The Scholarship Selection committee requests that your letter reflect your main specialty interests at this point in time and any geographic preference in Vermont that you may have at this time, understanding that these may change. Please email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your materials must be received by August 15, 2021 for consideration. After you apply, finalists will be contacted to schedule a 15-20 minute remote interview with the Selection Committee. Any student in the Class of 2023 may apply regardless of state of residence or of being a recipient of other scholarships. You should not apply if you have a military obligation, if you are a NHSC scholar, if you are enrolled as MD/PhD, or if you are not accumulating educational debt.
