The scholarship is aimed at students who are enrolled in or accepted into health professions programs working towards one of the following degrees: Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Physician Assistant (PA), and Nurse Practitioner (NP). Eligible candidates include incoming first-year students, as well as all current students who have at least 1 academic year remaining in their studies. The scholarship is offered to US citizens. Only one entry per person. The scholarship is not available to employees, officers, directors or contractors of OnlineMedEd or their immediate family members. Applicants must complete all steps of the application process to be considered.
A note on eligibility and why this is only open to US students: OnlineMedEd is a US-based organization. There are fewer legal barriers when offering scholarships or giveaways in an organization’s home country. Opening this scholarship up internationally means navigating international laws that differ significantly across countries. Currently, the OnlineMedEd legal team isn't equipped to take on this challenge. We're hoping that as OnlineMedEd grows, we'll be able to provide opportunities like the OnlineMedEd Black Lives Matter Scholarship to non-US international audiences in the future.
The application includes: (1) basic personal information, contact information, and details of the degree you’re pursuing; (2) a short questionnaire; and (3) a video submission of no more than 5 minutes in length. The entirety of the application must be submitted through the application link. Applications submitted in parts to OnlineMedEd emails will be considered incomplete.
SELECTION OF WINNERS

Please note that in order to claim scholarship funds, you must be able to provide proof of attendance to your program. Scholarship funds must be applied toward the costs of tuition, research, books, exam fees, study resources or other expenses appropriate to the pursuit of one’s professional degree. Each scholarship awardee must be prepared to verify use of scholarship funds within one year. Under no circumstances should monies awarded to winners be used toward non-educational expenses.
