Medical scholarship available for Adirondack region students

Tuesday, April 2, 2024


LAKE PLACID — The Dr. U.R. Plante Medical Scholarship program at Adirondack Foundation is accepting applications now through May 15.

The Plante Scholarship at Adirondack Foundation is awarded annually to medical students who have resided in the Adirondack Park — or in St. Lawrence, Franklin, Clinton, Essex or Hamilton counties — for a minimum of two years. Successful candidates must be willing to return to one of these locations, a rural community elsewhere in the U.S. or an area where there is a shortage of doctors.

Interested applicants must be accepted to, or currently enrolled in, an MD or DO program. Scholarships of up to $10,000 are awarded annually.

Applications must be submitted through Adirondack Foundation’s Online Grants Manager. More information can be found at
