Woll Scholarships

Through the generous support of Drs. Douglas and Margo Yellin Woll, Global REACH is able to provide up to $2500 to support student educational experiences in LMIC settings. These scholarships typically support an international clinical elective with an additional scholarly component.

Who: Third- or fourth-year UMMS students.

What: One- to two-month international clinical clerkships that incorporate an additional scholarly focus (e.g., research, a quality improvement project, or an educational project etc.).

Where: Woll Scholarships are reserved exclusively for settings designated by the World Bank as LMICs. Preference will be given to applicants pursuing experiences at qualifying UMMS partner institutions (i.e., schools with an active UMMS exchange agreement). See a list here of more than 20 partner institutions across a dozen countries (note that not all are in LMICs).

Amount: Up to $2,500 to help cover the cost of travel and living expenses.

Apply: The application period for the summer 2023 is now closed. The next application window will open Oct. 2, 2023 for students planning educational experiences in the winter/spring of 2024.
