Choose Virginia Scholarships

The Virginia Academy of Family Physicians (VAFP) Foundation is delighted to provide one medical student scholarship and one resident scholarship for assistance with education loan repayment. Many medical students and family medicine residents in Virginia have expressed an interest in staying in Virginia after their graduation to complete a family medicine residency or to practice in a medically underserved area. Over the past two years the VAFP Foundation has received donations to support this effort to keep our own. The Foundation will offer one graduating Virginia medical student a $1,500 scholarship if they attend a Virginia family medicine residency program and one $2,000 scholarship for a graduating PGY-3 Virginia family medicine resident who wishes to practice in an underserved area of Virginia.
