Medical Student Aid
Dr. Melvin Bacon Scholarship Fund
The Maine Medical Education Trust (MMET) was established by the Maine Medical Association and within it is the Dr. Melvin Bacon Fund. Dr. Bacon, now deceased, practiced medicine in York County, Maine for many years. He was especially interested in helping Maine students pursue a career in the health field. This fund, set up by the family in his name, is to provide an annual $1000 scholarship to a Maine resident enrolled in an allopathic medical school. Preference is given to York County residents.
The deadline for the 2013 application has passed.
The 2013 recipient of the Dr. Melvin Bacon Scholarship is Sara Powers of Auburn, Maine. Congratulations Sara!
The Maine Medical Education Foundation Loan
The Maine Medical Education Foundation (MMEF) Loan Program was established in the 1959 by the Maine Medical Association (MMA) to make loans available to Maine residents enrolled in or accepted to approved medical schools. Over the past 50 years, over $5 million has been loaned to deserving medical students. These loans can be used to fill the gap between federal loan programs and the full cost of education.
