About the Program

The Chicago Community Trust has partnered with National Medical Fellowships to create the Dr. David Monash/John Caldwell Scott Medical Student Scholarship Program in Chicago, Illinois. This service-learning program is designed to increase the number of qualified medical providers who have a commitment to improving access to quality healthcare in medically underserved communities of Chicago. Both the Trust and NMF believe that developing health professionals with a commitment to community service from diverse, multicultural backgrounds will help improve the quality of a culturally competent healthcare workforce and help to close the health disparities gap.

Number/Value of Awards and Restrictions

The Monash/Scott Service Scholarships are available to six (6) second- or third-year medical students who each receive $5,000 for conducting a community health elective rotation at their site of choice.

Residency Scholarships are available to four (4) students who have completed medical school, matched as clinical residents in the Chicago area, and exhibit commitment to underserved populations. Each awardee receives $25,000, 80% of which must be used to decrease medical school debt. Documentation of the use of funds is required.

 

About The Chicago Community Trust               

The mission of The Chicago Community Trust is to improve the lives of the people in metropolitan Chicago. We believe that the diversity of our community is a fundamental strength of our region. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice.

We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms, and behaviors. Throughout our work, we will support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing but not limited to age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation.

Leading by example we aspire to make diversity a core and abiding strength of the nonprofit sector.
