As the driving force of opportunity today, everyone should have access to a good education to power their future. Sadly, many divorced women and single mothers don’t have this access.
The Raquel Merlini Pay It Forward Scholarship is designed to support one divorced woman or a single mother with an opportunity to pursue the education she deserves. All single mothers or divorced women pursuing or considering pursuing a degree in the medical field are eligible to apply.
To apply, please write a bit about yourself and how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through your medical career.

The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
