The MedSchoolCoach #PreMed Scholarship was created to acknowledge bright and deserving students who can benefit from medical school tutoring and advising, but for whom cost is prohibitive.
Students we select will be ambitious and capable of gaining an acceptance to med school. We want the students we select to ultimately succeed on their journey to become a physician. We know they do not have the resources or support structures in place to actualize their goal today. That’s where this scholarship can help.
We believe financial barriers to a medical education for students from lower socio-economic backgrounds should be overcome. This scholarship will be awarded to four students in December 2020, who may begin working with MedSchoolCoach as early as January of 2021.
Students who meet the following criteria are highly encouraged to apply:
A total of 1 Gold Scholarship and 3 Silver Scholarship winners will be award in December 2020. The student will be eligible to use the service for the 2021/22 MCAT & application cycle.
All application materials, including your references’ evaluation, must be received by 10 PM EST on Sunday, December 1st, 2020. Winners will be selected in December 2020. Selected students may begin working with MedSchoolCoach as early as January of 2021.
The application is made up of a few questions, an essay, and a short video. For the essay, responses should be no longer than 300 words. For the video, responses should be 5 minutes or less. With thoughtful consideration to the written and video prompts, we estimate only 1 hour is needed to complete the scholarship application.
We’ve made the application as simple as possible, but we want to get to know you! The application will consist of:
Describe what you believe is currently the biggest healthcare issue facing underrepresented communities.
We want applicants who have the potential to give back to their community, to pay forward what they receive and to make an impact in other people’s lives. Many candidates from different backgrounds are good candidates for our scholarship. Our goal is to support students that would otherwise not be able to use our services without this scholarship.
We do not discriminate in the awarding of this scholarship on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability or handicap, sex or gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic.
No. MedSchoolCoach created this scholarship so that students who do not have access to high quality mentorship and exam preparation can receive it. Medical school scholarships are often available with cash value, however if a student does not achieve an acceptance to medical school, those scholarships are worthless. The MedSchoolCoach #PreMed Scholarship is an attempt to help those who otherwise would not have been able to achieve an acceptance to medical school.

I was actually hesitant when I first used MedSchoolCoach; it was a lot of money and I wasn’t sure how much help I really needed. I am so glad that I ended up using their services! My advisor (Audrey Jordan) was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
MedSchoolCoach provided me with a phenomenal advisor that helped me perfect my primary and secondary essays. This led me to be accepted into two allopathic medical schools and interview throughout the country. I would highly recommend!
MCAT Tutoring with MedSchoolCoach was Awesome! Coral, Connor, and Ken were amazing tutors. My score went up 19 points from my diagnostic exam (496 to a 515) working with them. I am a sociology major and took the exam a month after finishing my first semester of biology. When I set my target score to 515 I thought I was being overly optimistic and I really wasn’t expecting to reach it the first go around. I purchased the platinum package and MedSchoolCoach’s master tutor Ken took my target score really seriously and worked with me to build a custom study schedule to get me there. Coral was my tutor for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem sections and Connor for Psych/Soc. They were both awesome! They both had so much experience and knowledge about the exam and how things come up, and they really made sure I had everything down. Thank you guys so much for all your help!
MedSchoolCoach was an absolutely incredible service. I used them first for med school applications and I could not have been happier with the service they provided. Their counselors were responsive, and went so far out of their way to help put together the perfect application.
Extremely patient, helpful, insightful, and cooperative individuals. Truly have helped make my medical school application more competitive and I am more confident in not only my application and myself. Small investment for help from great people!
