Rural medical students enrolled in Alberta's Faculties of Medicine (University of Alberta & University of Calgary) have until Friday to apply for financial support from RPAP | Health Workforce for Alberta.

31 October 2014 is the deadline to apply for one of two financial support initiatives to help ease the financial burden faced by students and their families:

RPAP's John N. Hnatuik Rural Medical Student Bursary

The Hnatuik bursary provides full tuition including differential fees for each year of medical studies to reduce the financial burden faced by rural medical students and their families.

The Bursary is available to students in any year of their medical degree. Once accepted the student receives the Bursary every year until medical school graduation, contingent upon their meeting the program requirements.

The RPAP Rural Medical School Award

The RPAP Award provides $5,000 for each year of medical studies to assist with the student’s tuition, accommodation, living and/or travel expenses. The Award is available to students in any year of their medical degree. Once accepted the student receives the Award every year until medical school graduation, contingent upon their meeting the program requirements. The number of Awards available from the RPAP may vary on an annual basis. The intent is to grant up to two Awards per medical school per year.
