Giva's Corporate Excellence in Medicine Student Scholarship is for anyone currently enrolled in an accredited school of medicine in the United States or Canada. This scholarship grant is aimed at assisting medical students further their education.
Giva will award $1000 scholarships to students currently enrolled in an accredited school of medicine in the United States or Canada who write thoughtful essays in answering the following questions:
How will you use your talents and education to make the world a better place for future generations? What are your career and personal goals and why?
The essay needs to be between 600-1000 words, and must be received by Giva no later than September 1st or March 1st of each year. A current resume must also be included with the essay. Giva will choose the scholarship winners and will award the scholarships by November 15th and May15th of each year. Students can only apply once in any 12-month period.
In addition to the scholarship winners will be entered into Giva's six-month essay program. Giva will provide a social media platform wherein subsequent essays written by the award winners will be published on the Giva website, as well as other social media. The essays will reflect the personal experiences, perspectives and aspirations of the winners in order to encourage and inspire others.
Essays may be competitively judged in a public forum and posted anonymously on Giva's public web site for judging so do not include private information in your essay or anything you do not want posted on the Internet. The winner's name, school and essay may be posted on Giva's web site and social media.
All students, currently enrolled either full or part time in an accredited medical school program in the United States or Canada are eligible and encouraged to apply. The candidate must be enrolled and active as a student already, not a high school student and not waiting to attend the college/university. The award is for school tuition so the scholarship check will be written out to the student's educational institution. Giva employees, family relatives and vendors are not eligible.
In Giva's commitment to preserve our environment, we are only accepting electronic versions of the application. You must email your application, along with your essay and resume to Giva by the indicated deadline. Please see the application for emailing instructions.
