$1 from every set of scrubs goes to support PreMedical minority students applying to medical school with the funding of their MCAT, an MCAT prep course, and medical school application fees though our Scholarship & Non-Profit Organization , Mentoring Minorities In Medicine (M3).
Mentoring Minorities In Medicine (M3) Scholarship/Non-profit organization was created by 6 resident physicians to mentor inspire and support minority students applying to medical school through the funding of the MCAT, an MCAT prep course, and medical school application fees.
To date, Mentoring Minorities in Medicine (M3) Non-Profit Organization & M3 Scholarship has raised over $10,000
Our 2021 recipient Annie W. highlighted that she was able to focus on her application rather than finances, all while increasing her competitiveness by gaining access to MCAT preparatory material, and mentorship. We are overjoyed to announce Annie has received her first acceptance into Medical School for Fall 2023.
In 2022, we partnered with Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine to award a minority student in good academic standing this year’s scholarship. The recipient will be announced in April 2023.
Growing up Black in America often comes with various challenges. Our communities experience disparities from birth in the areas of health, education, access to vital resources, and employment to name the least. This disparity is very apparent in the medical field. Out of all the physicians in the U.S., a mere 5% identify as African-American or Black. It is our duty as physicians to actively work towards increasing this number. It is well-known that several underrepresented minority students do not have the luxury of preparing for medical school with the same resources, guidance or support as their non-minority counterparts.
The M3 Scholarship was designed to alleviate the financial burdens associated with the application process while encouraging minority pre-medical students to continue striving towards a career in medicine. The scholarship recipient will be selected by a committee of resident physicians after completing all requirements of the application process. The recipient will also be connected with medical student and physician mentors based on specialty interest and other commonalities.

“I am very honored to have been selected as the recipient of the 2021 M3 Scholarship. With your support, I have been relieved of the financial burden of the MCAT and medical school application. I’m also grateful to receive mentorship from the M3 team. I feel prepared to tackle the application season because of their encouragement and support. I am excited to embark on this journey to become a physician. As a future physician, I hope to serve the U.S and global underserved populations. Thank you for supporting my dream.”
