About the Scholarship
Did you know that our doctors award annual scholarships to deserving high school students as part of our long-term commitment to supporting future generations of doctors?
Each year, the Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group (PAFMG) awards Pre-Med Scholarships to local high school seniors who will attend a four-year college and plan to pursue careers as doctors. The scholarship was started by Richard Babb, M.D., who was a gastroenterologist at PAMF’s Palo Alto Clinic, and is funded in full by our doctors. Since Dr. Babb started the program in 1993, PAFMG doctors have awarded more than 60 scholarships to local students.
Scholarships are a total of $25,000, paid out over five years: four years of an undergraduate university and the first year of medical school.
