Inspire the Next Generation of Physicians!
The Butte-Glenn Medical Society Board of Directors presented our inaugural awards in April 2020. These scholarships are to inspire the next generation of physicians as we seek to address access to care issues in our region. One award is for a high school senior from any school in Butte or Glenn county and will be approximately $2,000. The other award is for a senior graduating from CSU Chico’s pre-med program and will be approximately $2,000. A CSU Chico pre-med senior student who intends to apply to medical school within 2 years of graduating for enrollment in either 2023 or 2024 is allowed to apply for this award.
High School Seniors from all Butte and Glenn County schools are welcome to apply for the high school scholarship.
Pre-Med program senior students at CSU Chico will also be eligible to apply for the college scholarship.
Butte-Glenn Medical Society physician leaders know that the road is long and difficult through medical school to residency and then starting to practice medicine. We hope these scholarships can be a beacon as students pursue their dreams, and perhaps consider coming back to the area to practice medicine. It is our goal to award these scholarships and to follow these students as they become healthcare leaders.

Scholarship Committee needs you!
If a physician would like to participate in the Board of Directors' Scholarship Committee, please contact Kristy Bird MaKieve, Executive Director of BGMS, at email@example.com or contact Dr. Bill Whitlatch, President. After launching the scholarships in 2019, the main function of the Committee will be to review applications and recommend final decisions. It's a rewarding effort.
