The Japanese American Medical Association (JAMA), a professional organization of physicians and surgeons in Los Angeles, is offering scholarships for medical students in their first, second, or third year of study.

The person or persons awarded the scholarship receive up to $2,500 to aid financial needs. In addition, their names are inscribed onto the scholarship plaque that is displayed at JAMA’s annual social events. The deadline to submit applications is Jan. 16, 2015.

The criteria for the scholarship will be based on academic achievement, financial need, and the applicant’s interest in serving the Japanese American community.
