George Mason signed an agreement with the St. Martinus University (SMU) Faculty of Medicine, located on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles, on Wednesday. The agreement will enable qualified Mason undergraduates to use 12 of their biology credits toward their first year of medical school at SMU, saving both time and money. The agreement also provides an annual George Mason – St. Martinus Presidential Medical Scholarship for an academically qualified Mason student with financial need.
