Timmy Global Health Scholarship Program

Timmy has always sought to engage student volunteers in high-impact service initiatives. Beginning in 2012, we created the Timmy Global Health Scholarship Program to ensure that all students—regardless of resources—have the opportunity to participate on our medical service trips.

Student Travel Support Fund
Provides aid to undergraduate Timmy students who require financial assistance to participate on their chapter-sponsored medical service trip

Hank Benjamin Memorial Scholarship
Offsets the costs of travel expenses for graduate professional Timmy students (medical, nursing, PA,NP, pharmacy) who require financial assistance to join a Timmy trip.

Both scholarships are designed to provide financial support to students who require financial assistance to participate on their chapter-sponsored medical service trips. This is a need-based award presented to students that show excellent potential or academic success in the area of global health. Recipients must demonstrate a level of financial need, interest in global health, a history of volunteerism, and thoughtful career plans.  Scholarship awards are up to $1,000.

Our Scholarship Program was inspired and created in loving memory of Hank Benjamin, a medical student who spent time volunteering at Pop Wuj—Timmy’s partner organization in Guatemala. Hank embodied all of the traits of a Timmy chapter member, and it is in honor of him that we are able to support other medical professionals in-training along their journey into a global health career.
