A $2,000 scholarship awarded by the Medical Assistant Courses Online to promising young people either currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a medical assisting program at an American college.
These scholarships are awarded by Medical Assistant Courses Online, an association of advisers in education specializing in degrees and careers related to medicine, such as medical assisting, physician assisting, pharmacy assisting, nursing, phlebotomy, or dental hygiene. They offer free online information to help students and professionals face the various challenges engendered by their highly demanding fields.
The scholarships they offer aim to provide generous financial support to promising, talented and dedicated U.S. undergraduate students or prospective undergraduate students interested to begin or continue their education at an American college and to pursue a career in medical assisting.
Differently from previous years, when applicants were required to submit a 450 to 600 words essay explaining the reasons why they want to become medical assistants, in 2020 candidates can choose to submit either the essay OR a 3 to 5 minutes “video essay” on the same topic.
The amount of the award is $2,000 and the deadline for the submission of the online application is December 31, 2020.
- Applicants must be either currently enrolled in a college or in their last year of high school and planning to begin a medical assisting degree in the next year
