All UPEI-based medical students to receive entrance scholarships, thanks to $1M donation

Beginning in Fall 2025, every first-year University of Prince Edward Island medical student will receive a $2K scholarship, thanks to a recent $1M gift from the Rathlyn Foundation. The Rathlyn Foundation Entrance Scholarships for UPEI Medical Students will be funded in perpetuity by the foundation’s gift. “What tremendous news for PEI students just as the Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine admissions portal opens for all students this month,” said Prince Edward Island Premier Dennis King. “As a government, we are proud to support the Memorial–UPEI partnership with the infrastructure and technology required to make sure all PEI residents have an equitable opportunity to get into medical school.”
