MEDEX Northwest has established several in-house scholarship funds to honor special individuals who have been part of our family over time. An announcement in winter quarter invites students to apply for these scholarships, which emphasize primary care, a focus on the medically underserved, and leadership potential. One is focused on emergency medicine. Scholarships are awarded at the April MEDEX Alumni Reception & Awards Ceremony in SeaTac, WA. This annual event coincides with the Western Washington meeting of the Washington Academy of Physician Assistants (WAPA). Students must be currently enrolled to be eligible to apply.
Professional associations also offer scholarships to currently enrolled PA students who meet certain criteria. WAPA, the American Academy of Physician Assistants Veterans Caucus and the Physician Assistant Foundation sponsor just a few of these awards annually. Application details are made available to MEDEX students as the application process opens.
