At BeMo, we believe education is your most valuable asset and that everyone deserves access to higher education regardless of social, cultural, economic or racial background. We also understand that the costs of tuition and application process to medical school place a significant burden on some applicants and their families. To help students and their parents in this noble journey, we’re excited to offer a $5,000 scholarship to those in need. The scholarship will be offered twice every year with application deadlines on May 31st, and October 31st.
