Lynchburg Academy of Medicine

Scholarship Award

The Lynchburg Academy of Medicine Alliance is dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community through health education and service.

As a part of our mission, the Alliance has established an annual educational scholarship to be given to a student who is studying to enter a health care profession. There are three initial criteria:

  • Applicants must be accepted into or currently enrolled in a health related program located in the Lynchburg area.
  • Applicants must reside in Lynchburg or surrounding area. Applicants must submit a complete application by the first Friday in March.
  • The scholarship recipient will be notified the first Friday in April and the money applied to the following semester (summer or fall).

This is a one-time scholarship of up to $1,000. Applicants who have applied in the past must submit a new application to be considered.  Preference will be given to applicants who have not won the LAMA scholarship before.

A complete application will include: complete personal information form, essay, two letters of recommendation (from employers or professors), a transcript, and letter of acceptance or some other proof of enrollment in a health care program.To apply, download the application form by clicking here. Applications are also available at local health care schools. Completed applications are due by the first Friday in March.
