Over $200,000 of Scholarships to Award by October 10th, 2020
We're here to help you enter medical school and become a doctor.
The problem with medical entry
Entering medical school is challenging. Of the 1500 top achieving high school students who make it into premed, only 10% will enter medical school at the University of Auckland. While an A- might seem fine for most students, it can be a complete disqualifier for premed where the safe entry GPA is close to full A+’s. The vast majority of students walk into premed totally underprepared to deal with the almost unfair pace, workload and difficulty. And four months later, despite their best effort, their results fall (often far) short.
But many of the biggest mistakes are avoidable with good preparation. We’ve helped more students avoid these mistakes than anyone else in New Zealand. And we want to make sure this level of help is accessible for anyone willing to put in the work.
Total Value Up to $2700 Per Student!

Who is Eligible?
In order to receive a scholarship, you must be:
- A New Zealand citizen
- Aiming to enter medical school at either the University of Auckland or the University of Otago
- At least 15 years old
Not all applicants will be successful, though we will attempt to give varying levels of scholarship to as many students as possible. Our scholarships will be awarded based on a combination of:
- Academic achievement and merit
- Personal circumstances that make preparation difficult
- Financial restriction
- Māori or Pacific ethnic identity
- Strong and justified desire to work in rural areas of New Zealand
The scholarship is open to all students. Although ethnicity and rural work preference is considered, we will not prevent a student from being awarded a scholarship simply because they do not want to work rurally, or are not Māori or Pacific. Awarding of scholarships is entirely up to our own discretion.
