The Blackwell Medical Scholarship Program External Icon provides a unique opportunity for first-year students. Those who meet and maintain the standards of the program are guaranteed a place in our College of Medicine upon their graduation from Hobart & William Smith Colleges.

This program is for high school students who are from rural areas, underrepresented minority groups or are the first generation in their families to attend college. To be considered, you must:

  • Have 1250 combined SAT Scores (Math & Verbal only) or 28 ACT Composite
  • Have a minimum 90% High School Grade Point Average
  • Demonstrate commitment to a career in medicine

Students accepted into this program will complete their undergraduate degree at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and are guaranteed admission to Upstate's College of Medicine, pending all program standards are met.

Acceptance into these programs indicates your willingness to participate in the Rural Medical Scholars Program (RSMP). You will therefore be assigned to the RMSP track as a medical student at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
