The High School Pipeline Program Scholarship was developed in 2017 to assist high school students of underrepresented minority background to enroll in pre-med pipeline programs for youth medical education and healthcare career exploration. The objective of this scholarship is to increase interest in healthcare careers and medically oriented research careers among high school students from underrepresented minority backgrounds and low-income students by defraying the costs of participation in these programs. This scholarship will also encourage students to join LMSA early for mentorship opportunities.
LMSA-West will award scholarship recipients up to $2000 one-time scholarship for established summer enrichment health sciences programs. This scholarship is sponsored by AltaMed.
