Previous Medical Student Scholarship Mentors
Many students have been very successful connecting with mentors who have had previous Roessler, Bennett, or Watts scholarship recipients in their labs. These mentors have had the experience of mentoring a Medical Student, are familiar with the academic courseload and the requirements of scholarship awardees.
