Travel Scholarships Open Doors and Make a Lasting Impact for Volunteers and the Communities They Serve

FIMRC volunteers are essential to our mission to improve healthcare worldwide through sustainable and responsible programs. One way we help support volunteer travel is through our scholarship program. Three times a year, FIMRC makes travel scholarships available to volunteers looking for a way to give back, gain clinical experience, or discover the right global health career track for them.
