The AAMC Fee Assistance Program provides financial assistance to individuals who, without this aid, would find it very difficult — if not impossible — to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), apply to medical schools through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS), and fulfill other obligations on the path to a career in medicine. The AAMC encourages all eligible aspiring physicians to apply for fee assistance.

The information in this guide is necessary for a smooth application process. You must read the Fee Assistance Program Essentials for Calendar Year 2021 before completing your AAMC Fee Assistance Program application.

When you apply, you will be asked to certify that you have read and understand the policies and procedures contained in Fee Assistance Program Essentials for Calendar Year 2021 and that you agree to comply with them.
