Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy

A Division of the NAPCA Foundation

We are committed to building a diverse pipeline of future medical doctors, as early as 4th grade, that is more representative of the U.S. population.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Make your MPP Academy experience possible through our financial assistance program.

The MPP Academy understands that family circumstances may not enable all qualified students to attend a program without financial assistance. Therefore, through the generosity of donors, financial assistance, to the extent possible, will be made available to assist as many admitted students as possible.

The financial assistance committee takes into consideration extenuating circumstances such as recent job loss, illness, and injury. Limited aid is available and an application is not a guarantee of financial assistance. Financial assistance is provided on a rolling basis and will be distributed until all funds have been exhausted.

Eligibility

  • Financial assistance is available to the families of students who have been admitted to the program. Assistance is distributed fairly and openly on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to fund availability.

Financial Assistance Process & Notification

To be considered for financial assistance, applicants must complete two items:

MPP Academy Online Application for Admission: Apply Now

Financial Assistance Application: Apply Now

The financial assistance application deadline is on a rolling basis until all funds set aside for families in need have been distributed. We will do our best to help as many students/families as possible. Students will be notified of their financial assistance award at the time they receive their admission decision letter via email.

Application Requirements

Families who would like to prepare materials in advance, please have the following items ready to complete your Financial Assistance Application.

All items must be submitted via the online financial assistance application:

Household Information

PROOF OF INCOME FROM PARENTS/GUARDIANS

Documents required: Copy of most recent federal income tax return or paystub.

  • Providing proof of income from both of the student’s parents including step-parent(s) living in the same household with the student, if applicable, is required unless you have a special circumstance.
  • If your family has a special circumstance that prevents both of the student’s parents from providing proof of income, you will need to describe your special circumstance in your financial assistance application as it will help our financial aid committee better understand your situation.

PARENTS WHO ARE NOT LIVING IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD:

  • Parents who are not living in the same household can submit their proof of income separately. If your family chooses to submit proof of income separately, each parent will need to complete and submit our financial assistance application for their child independently.

Application Deadline

Financial Assistance Deadline

There is no deadline. Students are encouraged to apply early for priority consideration. Limited aid is available and an application is not a guarantee of financial assistance. Financial Assistance awards are made on a rolling basis and will be distributed until all funds have been exhausted.

Fundraising

While the MPP Academy would like to meet the financial needs of all students, the large volume of financial assistance applicants combined with limited funding means that not all applicants will receive financial assistance.

Students and parents have reported that online fundraising was one of the best ways to secure the additional funds needed to cover their cost to attend the MPP Academy. Our students and parents wrote a compelling letter to ask for donations from family and friends. Additionally, parents that maintained a Facebook page, placed the letter on their Facebook page to spread the word to family and friends. Many of our students have used gofundme.com, kickstarter.com, and indiegogo.com to do online fundraising. Online fundraising has proven to work for our students and parents. In several cases, students have been able to raise funds covering the full cost of their program and travel expenses.

If you need help setting up your online fundraising website, our student support team is here for you. You can set up your personal online fundraising website in about 10-15 minutes.
