The Dr. Patti Flint Women in Science Scholarship was initially established in 2015 to help encourage and support Arizona women seeking a career in the field of science. Before becoming a plastic surgeon, Dr. Flint routinely experienced a seemingly systemic lack of support and mentorship throughout her education, thus started her scholarship as a way to give back to other women in need of support both form an education and financial standpoint.
Unlike other scholarships, Dr. Flint’s “Women in Science” scholarship does not have any age restrictions. This is due to the fact that Dr. Flint recognizes that in many cases, obtaining a degree may require women take different paths—often at different stages in their lives.
We encourage all eligible women and girls to apply. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have regarding the application process.
