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 offers a variety of grants, scholarships and awards for students who have academic distinction. The Foundation is an entity who acts in a free, responsible, autonomous way; guided by ethical principles and respect for human dignity.
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’s office of Financial Aid for the scholarship amount to be applied to the student’s account. Applications can be downloaded COMMON.click_here.
Inspired by the spirit of our Founder, Dr. Ramon Tallaj and his social vision of the medical profession; our mission is to work with talented young people of low socio-economic status to help train physicians, general surgeons and professionals in healthcare related fields.
The Dr. Ramon Tallaj Foundation strives to have a positive impact in the lives of outstanding individuals and the communities we serve. Learn more about how we transform healthcare through diversity, inclusion, and public engagement.
We Are Making a Difference
I am honored to have a foundation named after me that has the support of generous contributors such as yourself. For the last 5 years, the mission of the Dr. Ramon Tallaj Foundation has been to ensure that the gift of an excellent medical education is a viable option for future generations. We support those students with high academic achievements and low financial resources by creating an endowment fund through fundraising programs that will focus on key educational healthcare priorities.
“We aspire to challenge students to enhance their academic success.”
