Five full-tuition scholarships will be available to students entering in the May 2023 semester, and 15 full-tuition scholarships will be awarded to students entering the September 2023 semester. Five of these 20 total scholarships will be reserved for students from New York state. The Shaping Xavier scholarship has been launched in conjunction with the start of construction on Xavier’s new academic campus in Aruba. Set to open for the Fall 2024 semester, construction on the new academic campus will complete in approximately 18 months.
This new academic area of campus will include a theatre-style auditorium, state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, research facilities, seminar rooms, a new library, study areas for individuals, small groups, and large groups, student lounges, and a walk-in clinic. “Xavier’s new academic campus, combined with our new residential campus that opened in September of 2021, will become not only one of the best medical school facilities in the Caribbean, but one of the best in the world,” added President Bhooplapur.
This new academic building will continue to attract some of the best and brightest students to medical school in Aruba, continuing the tradition of success Xavier University School of Medicine has had in preparing students for successful careers in the medical field in the US, Canada, and all over the world. As the most affordable fully-accredited and New York State-approved medical school in the Caribbean, Xavier tries to make this quality education available at an affordable price, offering numerous scholarships and financial aid options for the full cost of attendance. Founded in 2004, chartered by the government of Aruba, and authorized by the Ministry of Education of Aruba, Xavier University School of Medicine (XUSOM) was named one of the Top 10 Caribbean Medical Schools by Money Inc.
