At the Dr. Ramon Tallaj Foundation, we believe in funding the vision and dreams of talented Hispanic young men and women committed to studying medicine and other healthcare-related fields in all corners of the U.S. and the world.
The Dr. Ramon Tallaj Foundation scholarship recipients reflect geographic, economic, social and cultural diversity; mirroring the intrinsic dignity of the person as fundamental human right. The dignity of an individual cannot be denied. In our foundation, we affirm the inalienable right to life, to family, to foster a social climate favorable to integral development, solidarity, and mutual appreciation.
Our grants and scholarships will benefit outstanding academic students coming from milieus that have not allowed access to the world of healthcare professionals to fulfill their social commitment.
Applications and required documentation are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. Approval is based on sincere interest in advancing in the healthcare field with consideration given to financial need.
Once the scholarship is approved, a Scholarship Agreement is signed and returned to the Foundation by the student. A check is then mailed to the student for the scholarship amount. Applications can be downloaded below. Applications for scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year must be postmarked or e-mailed by Monday, June 4th, 2018. No exceptions will be made.
