How Dr. Suhyun An Is Tackling The Student Loan Debt Crisis Head On With Her Scholarship

The Dr. Suhyun An scholarship was founded by entrepreneur, author, speaker, and philanthropist Dr. Suhyun An, a chiropractor and nurse practitioner to support medical students.

Dr. Suhyun An, DC, MSN, NP-C, is one of Houston, Texas’ most recognized and respected medical professionals. Throughout the course of her educational and professional careers, Dr. Suhyun An has solidified herself as a leader who has never shyed away from tackling an issue head on. Now, she is doing it again with the launch of The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship. This scholarship is perfect for students in pursuit of a higher education degree in a discipline in the medical field who are seeking financial assistance.  Every year The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship awards $2,000 to 2 students who demonstrate leadership and academic excellence. High school students that have been accepted to an accredited University or College or that are currently enrolled in one, including graduate students are welcomed to apply. To view the eligibility requirements, scholarship guidelines, and apply, students should visit www.DrSuhyunAnScholarship.com.

$250,000 in Student Loan Debt

Medical school often comes with both prestige and sadly, hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt. The costs associated with a pursuing a degree in medicine have continued to rise at an alarming rate, outpacing inflation. This has led to many students having to drop out of school due to a lack of financial means to complete their education or graduating with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt. Studies have shown that the cost of attending medical school has risen considerably every year over the past 10 years. The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship hopes to relieve some of the financial burden facing these students by addressing one of the biggest issues they’ll encounter, heads on.

A 2021 study conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics found that the total student loan debt taken on by students attending medical school has increased by 97% since 2000, with the average amount owed upon graduation being in excess of $251,000. Some attribute the rising costs of education to developments in technology, studies, treatments, and medications. While Dr. Suhyun An understands that the costs of emerging treatments and technology tends to be higher that more seasoned methods, she is not in support of hardworking medical school students having to be burdened with the costs without adequate support and resources.

Investing In Future Generations of Physicians

Often described by her patients as one of the most empathetic and caring physicians they’ve met, Dr. Suhyun An’s compassion is evident both in and out of the examination room, as exemplified in her scholarship. She has publicly stated that the goal of The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship is to provide an opportunity for economically underprivileged students with a desire to study medicine to realize their dreams of donning a white coat.

“The average student in college right now is finding it extremely difficult to afford without going into debt. This is a known fact, and unfortunately the issue is only exacerbated for those in medical school. This is a serious problem now, and it will only continue to grow for the next generation.  We need to support these young men and women because they are actively dedicating their lives not only to caring for others, but to developing the future treatments and medications that may save countless lives,” Dr. Suhyun An said while commenting on the average medical school student graduating with roughly a quarter million dollars in student loan debt.

Recognized for being innovative and revolutionary in her field, Dr. An is committed to shifting the narratives around health and medicine. “The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship is my way of investing in not only future generations of physicians, nurses, and others in medical careers, but the country as a whole. These young men and women are the ones who will be responsible for the next breakthroughs in medicine and healthcare, and it is an honor to be able to support them as they pursue their dreams.”

The Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship awards $2,000 to 2 students annually. These students are those who have shown a commitment to academic excellence by possessing a minimum weighted GPA of 3.0 while in pursuit of a career in the medical field. Applicants are also required to present 2 academic or professional references, as well as submit a 500 to 800 word essay detailing why they are pursuing an education and career in the medical field.

Students interested in applying for the Dr. Suhyun An Scholarship should visit https://www.drsuhyunanscholarship.com/apply to complete their applications prior to November 30th, 2021.
