Since 1973, the Chinese American Medical Society has awarded 3 to 5 scholarships a year to medical and/or dental students and scientists. The funds come from contributions and from the fundraising dinners. There are three named scholarships. Jeng Family Fund Scholarship, the Ruth Liu Memorial Scholarship, and the American Center for Chinese Medical Sciences Scholarship. In 1996, a Ruth Liu Memorial Scholarship was established by Dr. George Liu and friends to honor Dr. Liu's late wife. The Jeng Family Fund Scholarship was established in 2013 by Drs. Dai-Yun, Miji, and Christina A. Jeng for medical students in need of financial assistance.
To be eligible to apply, you must currently be in your first, second, or third year of medical or dental school in the U. S. Two slots will be for students who show merit and also financial hardship. To apply for this category, you must include a letter stating your financial problems and a letter from your dean or teacher to corroborate your claim.
