The Brody Scholars Program is North Carolina's most distinguished medical scholarship.
Each year, outstanding applicants to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University are invited to become Brody Scholars.
This award provides full tuition and fees and most living expenses for four years of medical school, allowing scholars to choose a medical specialty without the worry of debt after graduation.
What's more, the Brody Scholarship funds summer enrichment, such as travel abroad and special projects. The Brody Scholarship also supports service projects students may undertake while in medical school. Brody Scholars join a dynamic group of medical students with exceptional values. Their service to others, character, and leadership allow them to design unique programs of study, supported by the scholarship program.
Since the program began in 1983, Brody Scholars have continued to succeed as compassionate healers and community leaders.
The Brody Medical Scholars program shares the goals of the medical school to improve the health and quality of life for people in eastern North Carolina.
