London and District Academy of Medicine Memorial Bursary Fund

There are six bursaries of $1000.00 each which are available to students in any year of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry - Western University who demonstrate genuine financial need. The Memorial Bursary Fund was established by the London and District Academy of Medicine through donations made in memory of deceased members of the Academy.
