Grants and Scholarships
NYITCOM Institutional Needs-Based Grant
This grant is given to economically disadvantaged medical students. In order for us to determine eligibility, you must provide the following documentation:
- If you are under 24, you must submit your parents' most recent income tax data, regardless of marital status, dependent or independent status.
- If you are 24 or older, you must submit your parents' federal income tax returns for the past three years AND your and your spouse's most recent federal income tax returns.
Your eligibility will be dependent on the following rules:
- If you were claimed as a dependent on the parent's taxes, parental income data will be used.
- If you or your parents did not file income tax in the past three years, then you or your parent must provide documentation from the IRS or an accountant stating that there was no requirement to file.
- We will use your and your spouse's income from last year to determine your eligibility for the grant if:
- You were not claimed as a dependent on your parents' return.
- Both of your parents do not live in the United States.
- Both of your parents are deceased (you must provide documentation such as a death certificate or obituary).
Delta Leaders Scholarship
The Delta Leaders Scholarship is offered to all students who are attending NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University. The amount of the scholarship will vary based upon institutional funding. The scholarship will be renewed annually. Recipients of the scholarship must be continuously enrolled for four consecutive years and maintain good academic standing. Students are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive this award.
If you are committed to primary care, you can receive tuition, fees, other educational costs, and a living stipend, tax-free, for as many as four years in exchange for an equal number of years service (two-year minimum) at an approved facility in a high-need, underserved area.
The Army, Air Force and Navy offer full scholarships for medical school that provide a monthly stipend, tuition and fees, and, in some cases, money for required textbooks. The scholarship recipient is obligated to serve one year for each year of support, with a minimum of two years of service.
The NYITCOM Office of Financial Aid regularly informs students about outside scholarships as soon as information becomes available. To find out about outside scholarships, please contact us.
