The AKUAANA-JRM Scholarship Fund is the result of a collaboration between AKUAANA and JRM (Jamshed-Rahim-Mannan) Foundation for Humanity, an Idaho based non-profit started by two AKU alumni, Dr. Fahim Rahim, ’97 and Dr. Naeem Rahim, ’98. This fund was created to provide financial relief for medical students pursuing electives in North America. Further details for eligibility for the scholarship may be found here.
AKUAANA announced the first two recipients of the scholarship last year, one of whom has completed her electives while the other is currently doing her electives in the US.
This year, AKUAANA will be accepting applications from AKUMC Class of 2020 via our online application portal, which will remain open from August 1st, 2019 till September 1st, 2019.
A sample of the online application can be viewed here. Please note that only submissions made via the online application portal for the AKUAANA-JRM Scholarship will be accepted.
For queries, please feel free to contact AKUAANA Secretary Dr Noor Afshan, ’96 at email@example.com.
