Over the past several years, students at MSIH were awarded a record number of scholarships for both academic merit and financial need.  These scholarships have helped students dedicated to the field of global health shrink their costs.  Additionally, MSIH offers one full tuition merit scholarship, the Ben-Gurion Global Health Scholarship (BGGH).  The highly competitive BGGH Scholarship covers full tuition for all four years of the M.D. program at MSIH, the groundbreaking medical school that incorporates global health components into all four years of its medical curriculum.  The BGGH Scholarship is highly sought after, as it offers peace of mind for the recipient who is able to attend medical school without acquiring debt.
