We offer more than $50,000 in scholarships every year.
Come see if you are eligible!

**Our Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Scholarships are now closed 2023-2024. For these scholarships, please check back at the end of January 2025.**

Thanks to the significant generosity of BYU alumni and their families, there are scholarship opportunities available to BYU pre-medical and pre-dental students. The number of scholarships awarded will depend upon available funds and an applicant’s qualifications. Merit, as well as financial need, will be used in consideration. Scholarships are available for BYU students who will be sophomores, juniors, or seniors for the 2025-2026 academic year.

To be eligible for one of the scholarships, the applicant must have the following:

  • Completed at least 45 credit hours at BYU (this total does not include AP, concurrent enrollment, or transfer credits)
  • Completed at least two semesters of general chemistry prerequisites (not eligible if currently enrolled in course but not yet completed and AP credit does not apply)
  • A GPA of 3.4 or higher
  • Must not have previously received a scholarship from the PPAC.

Scholarships can range from several hundred to more than $1,000.

Through the generous support of donors, students who interviewed and were accepted to allopathic medical schools for the fall of 2025 are eligible to apply for this scholarship. These funds are for the purpose of reimbursing some of the expenses associated with applying to medical schools. Financial need may be considered when awarding these funds. Recipients must be currently enrolled BYU students and have at least one acceptance to an allopathic medical school (M.D.) in order to be eligible to receive funds (Dec 2024 and earlier graduates are not eligible to receive funding). Awards typically are around $1,000.
