#MSCScholarship - A Scholarship for MCAT and Medical School Admissions Prep | MedSchoolCoach

MedSchoolCoach #MSCScholarship

About the Scholarship

The MedSchoolCoach #MSCScholarship was created to acknowledge bright and deserving students who can benefit from medical school admissions advising and MCAT tutoring, but for whom cost is prohibitive.

These students are ambitious and capable of gaining an acceptance to med school. However, they do not have the resources or support structures in place to actualize their goal. We believe finances should not be a barrier to obtaining a medical education. That’s where this scholarship can help.

If this resonates with you, please review the eligibility and application requirements below.

Scholarship Eligibility

Students who meet the following criteria are highly encouraged to apply:

  • Juniors, seniors, or recent college graduates from U.S.-based colleges or universities.
  • A GPA of 3.5 or above.
  • Demonstrated extracurricular activities, including leadership, clinical, and research activities, or significant family responsibilities.
  • A pronounced desire to contribute to the community.
  • Underrepresented students are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Demonstrated financial need, based on family income or previous financial aid eligibility.
  • Applying for the 2024-2025 medical school application cycle.

All application materials (excluding evaluations from your professional references) must be submitted by 10 PM EST on Friday, December 1st, 2023. Winners will be announced February 1, 2024. Selected students can commence their collaboration with MedSchoolCoach as early as February 2024.
The application consists of a few basic information questions, an essay, and other required materials. Essays must not exceed 500 words. Given thoughtful attention to the prompt and time to gather and complete other materials, including the CV and unofficial transcripts, we estimate that the scholarship application can be completed intermittently in less than a week.

We’ve streamlined the application process, but we’re eager to learn more about you! The application must include:

  • A 500-word essay addressing the prompt: Explain how your cumulative experiences and education have shaped your motivation to become a physician, and how you plan to address healthcare issues faced by diverse communities in your career.
  • Your unofficial transcript.
  • Your CV.
  • Two professional references who will receive an email containing a brief evaluation form to complete on your behalf. If they’ve previously written a Letter of Recommendation for you, they can attach that as well.
  • Your most recent FAFSA SAR (Student Aid Report.
We seek applicants with a strong commitment to their communities. We aim to support students from diverse backgrounds, especially those who might not have been able to utilize our services without this scholarship. We do not discriminate based on race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic or identity.
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 a cash value. However, if a student does not achieve an acceptance to medical school, those scholarships are worthless. The MedSchoolCoach #MSCScholarship is designed to help those who otherwise would not have been able to achieve an acceptance to medical school due to financial barriers.
