URiM Scholarship Committee
At the core of King County Medical Society is the ability to support and enrich the health care community in King County. As a result, the society developed a Scholarship Committee aimed towards the future generations of medicine.
This committee recognizes the extraordinary financial needs of the majority of medical students. In response to these economic challenges, the Society’s Community Foundation is pleased to offer scholarships each year with valuations based on available funds.
The Scholarship Committee is responsible for developing strategies to help the Community Foundation continue to raise funds to impact this community positively. The Committee reviews and consider factors, including but not limited to financial need, personal statement, academic achievement, community and public service, and involvement and interest in public health or health disparities work.
The Society Community Foundation believes that diversity and inclusion in medicine remain critical to improving health care for all. The KCMS-CF is currently offering scholarships to support URiM medical students and acknowledge the historical and enduring effects of racism against Black and Indigenous people and other People of Color. KCMS-CF recognizes the unique structural challenges URiMs face during medical training and their careers.
