The WCI (White Coat Investor) Scholarship is a way for the entire WCI Community to “pay it forward”. This community includes blog readers, podcast listeners, Facebook Group and WCI Forum members, WCI Redditors, sponsors, staff, and owners.
The WCI Medical School Scholarship has no endowment fund so the scholarship money is raised anew every year. The purpose of the scholarship is to directly reduce the indebtedness of a few students and to promote financial literacy in professional schools.
2023 is another year and the White Coast Investor Scholarship is open to all medical school students who needs financial support to further their education.

They will also consider physical therapy and occupational therapy students if the program leads to a doctorate degree. Yes, I know the post title says “medical school scholarship” and most of the applicants and winners in the past were working toward MD and DO degrees, but all of these degrees are eligible.
- No online schools (brick and mortar only).
- No undergraduates.
- No residents. Even if you’re a dental resident paying tuition. Sorry, this is for students only.

Essay Topics for the WCI Scholarship
You may submit an essay to the “Inspiring Stories” category or the “Financial” category. Five winners will come from each category. You can only apply in one category.
Inspiring Stories are true stories about you, your family, and your background; why it has led you into your profession; and how it will affect your career. Perhaps the essay details an experience that happened to you in school that others would find humorous, interesting, or inspiring. Most of the winners from the earlier years would fall into this category. You can find links to those essays below.
The Financial category essays will describe what you have done in the past or will do in the future to become financially literate or to help others do so. They may explain a financial principle or experience, or they may give advice to your peers. They may be humorous or serious. But they have to be about a financial topic.
