Massachusetts Medical Society: R.D. LaPenta Medical Scholarship

R.D. LaPenta Medical Scholarship

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of scholarship assistance for students from NH, CT or MA enrolling in medical school.  Up to $300,000 is available annually.  Individual awards start at $10,000 and may be renewed during doctoral studies.

The deadline for application for study beginning in September 2017 is April 14, 2017.  Applications are available from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s website or use the online application portal.

The LaPenta Fund is one of many funds that the Charitable Foundation administers through ScholarshipSource, an online, universal application. Most funds are exclusively restricted to New Hampshire residents and most are for undergraduate work, so portions of the application may not be relevant for LaPenta applicants.

If there are questions about eligibility or other questions about how to apply, please contact the Student Aid Office at the Foundation: 603-225-6641.
