Annual NOSM Scholarship: Empowering Northern Ontario's Future Doctors

Annual NOSM Scholarship: Empowering Northern Ontario's Future Doctors

< Back

Since 2020, Frog's Breath Foundation created an annual scholarship of $5,000 to be awarded to a Northern Ontario student attending NOSM each year. To date we have donated of 15,000 dollars in NOSM scholarships.

Each year, the Frog's Breath Foundation eagerly extends its hand to the NOSM program, providing a scholarship to be awarded to one Northern Ontario resident pursuing their dream of becoming a physician. This partnership isn't just about financial aid; it's a testament to the Foundation's unwavering belief in the power of education to transform lives and communities.  

It's essential to clarify one crucial point: while the Frog's Breath Foundation provides the funding, the recipients of these scholarships are chosen through a rigorous selection process by the NOSM Selection Committee not through our foundation. This ensures that the most deserving candidates, based on merit and need, are given the opportunity to pursue their calling in medicine.

"My name is Joanna Murtha and I am a recipient of the Frog’s Breath Foundation Award at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine University. I just wanted to express my gratitude to both yourself and your foundation for making such a generous contribution to support medical learners in Northern Ontario. I am in my second year at NOSMU on the Sudbury campus. I am originally from Sault Ste. Marie and plan on practicing there once I finish my medical training. This award will help to reduce the financial burden of pursuing medicine and allow me to better focus on my studies."
