Diversity scholarships

At Mayo Clinic the promotion of cultural diversity and equal opportunity is a guiding principle and goal. The Diversity Scholarship Program encourages the participation of under represented minorities (African-Americans, Hispanics, American Indians and Alaska Natives) in Mayo's Visiting Medical Student Clerkship Program. The scholarship awards $2,500 (minus taxes) in financial support. Eligible students must be enrolled in U.S. medical schools.

The Diversity Scholarship is available for clerkships at all three Mayo Clinic locations. During your clerkship, you'll have the opportunity to meet with the program director and residents. You will also meet with the director of diversity affairs at Mayo Clinic.

If you are interested in being considered for the Diversity Scholarship, please complete the Scholarship section on the clerkship application.
