Students aspiring to become medical doctors in the future can now apply for the Dr. Erik Goluboff Scholarship for Medical Students in the United States.

All responses should be submitted no later than June 15, 2023.
Education is the key to any successful career and medicine is not an exception. Education will not only equip you with the required knowledge but also the skills needed to succeed in your career. Although many students dare to dream to become doctors, not all can afford funds to pay for their higher education. This has forced students to work part-time to earn money for their education while others give up on their dreams. With the skyrocketing costs of education, many talented future doctors are left out. No one understands this more than Dr. Erik Goluboff. For that reason, he would like to reward one lucky student with a scholarship to ease their financial burden. He further hopes that his scholarship will open more opportunities for students to find help.
