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.

So you see, what had happened was, I needed a change. I quit my job to go volunteer in the Dominican Republic... in a community that has limited electricity and running water, and almost never any hot water. What on earth was I thinking?! After months of debating with myself, I finally gave myself permission to take the leap, and dare to do something different. What I was about to embark on was risky and uncomfortable, which was not me at all.
