Association of Black Women Physicians MCAT-PREP Scholarship Opportunity

The Association of Black Women Physicians (ABWP) will offer 50 deserving African-American students an opportunity for intense MCAT academic preparation this Summer. Starting mid-June 2021, these selected students will receive both digital instruction via our collaboration with the Kaplan MCAT preparatory course platform ($3000) value and direct one on one instruction coordinated with STEM facilitators to increase their academic preparedness for the MCAT this September. 


The program will include over 100 tutoring hours including stress reduction and yoga instruction for mindfulness adaptation. The application fee has been set at $200 which will be fully refundable upon acceptable completion of the program. 

The top students will receive financial support for their planned AMCAS applications this Fall. The program will give priority to first time applicants with a competitive science GPA. Given time constraints, the acceptance committee will employ a rolling admissions process for qualification. In keeping with the ideals of the mission and vision of ABWP, all students male and female will be required to submit a short paragraph detailing their vision for medicine and how this opportunity attending the MCAT-PREP program will enhance their application success. 
“ABWP is an organized network of Black Women Physicians committed to the improvement of public health and welfare through the advancement of knowledge concerning women and community health. We serve as a philanthropic source of funds to projects related to the health concerns of underserved communities. We endeavor to enhance the personal and professional quality of life of present and future Black Women physicians.”
