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. Since Dr. Babb started the program in 1993, we have awarded more than 70 scholarships to local students.
Scholarships are up to $30,000, paid out over five years: four years of an undergraduate university and the first year of medical school.
