OUR INITIATIVES

The Price of a Dream is involved in a number of programs and initiatives, connected to our national strategy and mission of reducing financial barriers to medical school.

The Ontario Medical School Application Fee Waiver Pilot Program

The Ontario Medical School Application Fee Waiver (OMSAFW) Pilot Program is a pilot-program to help medical school applicants from low socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds who are applying to Ontario medical schools in the 2021-2022 application cycle. Successful awardees can save up to $600 on their Ontario medical school applicants.

 

This program was collaboratively developed by the Price of a Dream (POD), Community of Support (COS), the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC), the Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine (COFM), and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

 

POD is also supporting outreach for the program and has developed resources, such as an Applicant Toolkit with a “How to Apply” guide, a checklist, and more!

 

To check your eligibility and apply for the program, visit the AFMC website.


If you have any questions, you can reach out to AFMC (service@afmcstudentportal.ca) or POD via email (mdpriceofadream@gmail.com) or Instagram (priceofadream_md).
