At MedSend, we offer two types of grants for those who wish to serve as Christian medical missionaries.

The first is for US residents who have completed their medical training and are ready to commit to long-term missions. Student loan debt is often one of the biggest obstacles to serving as a medical missionary; at MedSend, we want to remove that obstacle for those who are called and have the hearts to serve. A MedSend grant will cover student loan installment payments during the time of service. Grants are typically awarded on a 4-year basis and are eligible for renewal.

The second type of grant is for students abroad who wish to further their medical training and intend to serve in-country as Christian medical missionaries. These types of grants are awarded through our MedSend National Scholars Program and fund residency/discipleship programs for those who have already completed some level of medical training.
