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.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
