Away elective scholarship – Stanford Department of Ophthalmology

The Stanford Department of Ophthalmology invites your medical students to apply to the SCORE (Stanford Clinical Opportunity for Residency Experience) Program. This program provides a $2000 stipend, dedicated mentorship, and free housing (which can otherwise be a challenge in the San Francisco Bay Area) to URiM, economically, educationally, or socially disadvantaged medical students and others whose backgrounds and experiences would diversify their clinical fields. This program is also available for a number of other medical specialties at Stanford. Please visit https://med.stanford.edu/clerkships/score-program.html for more information.
