 Part III. 

I understand that, if granted the Medical Scholarship Loan of the Berkshire District Medical Society, my tuition to an approved American or Canadian Medical School to which I have been accepted will be paid by the Berkshire District Medical Society up to the amount of $10,000 per year renewable for additional school years.  I further understand that the Committee on Scholarships of the Berkshire District Medical Society shall follow my progress in medical school with interest and retain the right to re-evaluate the continuance of the scholarship loan yearly.
In accepting this scholarship loan I agree to prepare myself for the practice of general medicine or one of its specialties (this does not exclude academic medicine and/or research as a goal) following graduation from medical school.  In the selection of my post graduate education, I will consider the approved programs of Berkshire County hospitals.
If the awardee returns to Berkshire County to practice as a primary physician and stays for 3 years, 1/3 of the loan would be forgiven each year the awardee practices in Berkshire County.
In realization of the fact that this scholarship loan will have afforded me an opportunity to enter the profession of medicine, I agree, the year of graduation from medical school, to start repayment to the Berkshire District Medical Society Fund for Medical Scholarships.  Half of the amount loaned should be repaid in four years and the balance in two additional years.  If, for any reason, I am unable to complete medical school, I promise to repay the scholarship loan within two years.
I certify that all of the enclosed statements are true to the best of my knowledge.

I acknowledge that my digital signature below shall have the same force and effect as a written signature and intend to be bound by it, and I certify that all of the information I have provided is true to the best of my knowledge.
