Dean's Fellow and Resident Scholarship

Residents and fellows enrolled in any of the College of Medicine – Tucson Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs are invited to apply for a new scholarship.

Named the Dean’s Fellow and Resident Scholarship, the program is intended to assist physicians who are pursuing educational coursework in addition to their residency training. Awardees can receive up to $5,000 per year. 

Applicants must be employed by Banner Health part-time (.5 FTE or more) and be pursuing coursework (online or traditional) at the University of Arizona. Their employment must be expected to continue for six months or more at the time of application. 

The Dean’s Fellow and Resident Scholarship is a competitive scholarship. Preference will be given to applicants who are enrolled in UA Health Sciences courses that are directly aligned with their professional career goals. Applicants will be asked to describe how the course(s) will further their career goals. 

The first cohort of Dean’s Fellows will be selected in August 2019 and funding will be applied directly to the awardees’ Fall 2019 tuition. 

The deadline to apply for the Dean’s Fellow Scholarship Program is August 2. An application packet is available to download here. For more information about the application process, contact Lauren Erdelyi at
