Financial Aid and Funding Opportunitiesfinancial aid

The cost of a quality education is not insignificant; most students need to look beyond their own resources for assistance. When students take on loan debt, the pressure to perform and secure employment can be overwhelming.

The Michigan Osteopathic Association is committed to assisting, making sure students have resources that will allow them to meet their needs. 

Below we are pleased to offer links to opportunities for both medical students and health care professionals, including scholarships, internships, fellowships and grants.
