U.S. Academic Scholarship

MUA is proud of its longstanding commitment to educating U.S. students to return home as prominent practitioners in the U.S. medical community and as ambassadors of the University. MUA also recognizes that a medical school education is a significant economic undertaking. As such, MUA has established the U.S. Academic Scholarship to assist applicants in financing their education. We look forward to reviewing the candidates.
