Dr. George Callahan Award

About your fund

Established in March 2017 by the George Callahan Foundation and awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need and academic achievement to undergraduate students entering the first medical year within the School of Medicine in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Preference will be given to students with the greatest demonstrated financial need who have not received awards of greater value. Consideration may be given, but is not limited to applicants’ membership in a historically disadvantaged group or any other factor relating to educational barriers faced by the applicant or to the ability of the applicant to enrich the diversity of the medical school community and the medical profession. The award is renewable for three subsequent years provided the student remains in good academic standing in a full-time course load and financial need remains evident.
