Scholarships for medical studies allow many high school seniors and continuing education students to pay the rising costs of tuition. Some of the scholarships are available through college and university financial aid offices while others are distributed through private organisations. In addition to covering the cost of tuition, the scholarships cover the cost of lab fees and books.
