Hi po. I am a BS Biology student of UP visayas, graduating this term. Gusto ko po talagang magmed pero mahirap lang po kami. Sa up bracket 3 ang assignment ko kaya meron akong monthly allowance and free pa yong tuition and lab fees. Kung di dahil sa scholarship d ko cguro makakapagcollege.hehe Tanong ko lang po kung may scholarship na pwede kong maavail pag sakaling nagmed ako. Di naman po sa pagmamayabang, consistent college scholar ako and 2 timer university scholar.hehe
Sa town po namin iisa lang po ang doktor at napakalayo pa ng ospital. I have tried scouting in the net but to no avail.hehe
salamat po.

HI Mark:
Typically, medical schools offer various types of scholarships... whether or not you qualify may be based on your family income and/or performance in pre-med and there are certain grade requirements you would have to maintain. I suggest that you look at the websites of the medical school you are interested in.

As an example, St. Luke's College of Medicine in Quezon City offers the following scholarships

SCHOLARSHIP GRANTS
The St. Luke’s Medical Center, in support of the St. Luke’s College of Medicine, together have embarked in an unprecedented feat of generosity by granting full scholarships to the best and the brightest graduates of leading Colleges/Universities of the land. It is the ultimate hope of this endeavor that the best College of Medicine and the state-of-art and first JCIA-accredited Medical Center in the Philippines are able to educate and train intellectually gifted individuals who aim for academic excellence with integrity and commitment and who truly desire to become part of the competent and compassionate healing professionals.

The St. Luke's College of Medicine Scholarship Program has two types of grants: full scholarship and partial scholarship.

The full scholarship is awarded to bachelor degree holders who graduated with Latin honors from colleges in the Philippines with NMAT score of 90% and above. This scholarship covers tuition, laboratory and miscellaneous fees and books.

The partial scholarship is given to bachelor degree holders with a GWA of 2.0 (or its equivalent) and an NMAT score of 90%. This covers 75% of the tuition, laboratory and miscellaneous fees and books.

A student promoted to the next year level may obtain/maintain a full scholarship provided that the GWA of the previous year is 85% or higher, with no grade lower than 80%. A partial scholarship may be obtained/maintained in the next year level if: (1) the GWA is 85% or higher without a failing grade, or (2) there is no grade below 80%.

REVOCATION OF SCHOLARSHIP

After an evaluation by the Scholarship Committee, scholars found guilty of any of the following infractions are automatically disqualified and their scholarship privileges immediately revoked:
• Any act which may be considered inimical to the interest of the College;
• Any misconduct or misdemeanor; and
• Any offense involving moral turpitude

Any student who feels that he needs financial assistance fills out an application form and is then directed to the Chair of the Committee. The Chair interviews the applicant as to the reason for the financial need, as well as the academic standing of the student. If the Chair concludes that the student is eligible for the fund, he will present the student’s data during the Committee meeting.

The requirements for a grant are as follows:

1. The applicant has had no failing grades, nor had to take remedial examinations in the previous semester.
2. There is a financial need for assistance based solely on the interview by the Committee Chair.

5. Application for renewal of the grant is required every semester.
6. A grant may be revoked if the student incurs any failing grades, or needs to take a remedial examination.
7. The student may also request for additional financial assistance, if this is truly needed, by addressing a letter to the Committee Chair. The additional assistance may be given pending the availability of funds and the perceived financial need.

I think you are still qualified. It just stated there that you can never take nursing as your professional career of choice again.

Correct me if I am wrong: I've read in the net that DOH suspended applications for their Pinoy MD program. I've read there that it was frozen years ago (2010) and there *might* be no more chance that it will open again. I've been trying to find the exact website from where I got that info but I can't seem to find it. It was an FB page filled with conversations of strangers, talking about the aforementioned program. There in the end DOH itself replied, saying that they have frozen the application and people must wait for their announcement if ever they will open the admissions again.

Most schools usually base scholarship grants on GWA and not by NMAT Percentile. Just inquire about the necessary grade requirements :)

Hi -

 

I hope you can help me. I'm planning to take up medicine but unfortunately my family cannot afford it so I am looking for med school who grants full scholarship which includes books and living expenses or alumni (doctors) or associations who provide scholarships for someone like me.

 

I am not a science course grad so it will be a total shift of career for me but one is certain I am into medicine.

I haven't taken NMAT yet as I want it to be above 90 percentile for scholarships.

 

Also, DOH program has been frozen but anyone would know when it will be open again?

 

I hope someone can advise or help me here as I really want to be a doctor. Thank you. :rolleyes: :bigheart:

I'm a nurse and aspiring to be a doctor. I'm considering going abroad if I can't find a scholarship.

The budget for 2017 has already been set or I think signature na lang ni PD30 ang kulang. 1.5B anfmg allocation sa Doctors to the Barrio. Dunno if included ba dun yung scholarship or it's just for the doctors na idedeploy nila.

Been actually searching for any info related to this link http://ralphrecto.ph...or-act-of-2016/
Hopefully talaga Sana Neron ng scholarships for next year.

hello :) sa mga schools na inapplyan ko and sa mga schools na inapplyan ng iba kong batchmates, wala akong nabasa o narinig na may scholarships available to board topnotchers. Pero try nyo po tumawag sa office ng mga preferred schools ninyo para masigurado kung anong scholarships ang available. Best of luck :)

Hi po I am a Bs Medical Technology student from an international school. Average lang po ang grade ko. Nag ra-range ang grade ko from 78-84 but willing talaga ako mag med kaso hindi yata ako qualified for scholarship and hindi ako kayang suportahan ng mga magulang ko. Is there's a chance na makakapag med school po ako? Gusto ko po talaga.

Hello Im a BSIT graduate, but i would like to pursue medicine. I don't have enough Science related subjects when i was in college. Is it still possible? or is there any minimum requirements (referring to Science subjects) when enrolling to medical school?

I know this would be out of the main topic. 

 

I'm planning to enroll for medicine next school year after this coming school year (2018). I'm already 24 years old by that time. Can someone please give me some advice for a 24 years old freshman. Thank you and God bless

Hi. My grades were way below your grades. I were a typical "bulakbol" college student, actually I spent 5 years just to graduate MedTech. and my family were just a average family, if not below average. But I will enroll medicine next year. Just prove to your parents that you badly want to be a doctor, and say your reasons why. Why don't you work first as a medtech and then save, save, and save just to prove to them that your dream is to be a doctor.

Hi, Angelo. Good to hear that you are going to enroll in medicine next school year.  :clap:  Did you find any scholarships for med? I really want to be a doctor but my grades were not too high and I am a working student taking up medical technology. Estudyante s umaga call center agent s gabi. Nagstop ako before ng ilang almost 4years and save para mabayran ung balance ko s school at para makpagaral uli. I am hoping I could find a scholarship pra mkapagmed ako. That is really my ultimate dream.

hi! depende kasi sa school yun. Inquire ka sa prospect schools mo what units ang kailangan nila. If you have kulang, you can try to enroll at PCHS (Philippine College of Health Sciences) malapit sa FEU-Manila? I had a few friends and classmates take supplementary subjects there. 

 

Hope this helps! and it isnt too late :) :thumbup:  :thumbup:

Hello :) yes it's still possible! You can enroll in schools that provide extra subjects you lack :D the minimum required units per subject depends on each school so it's best to do your research first before you take up the extra subjects. I wish you all the best :D

Hello po. I'm a BSN graduate of Butuan Doctors' College way back 2013. RN na po ako ngayon but my plans of pursuing medicine were hindered because I got employed. Now gusto ko magproceed but I do have financial constraints. May I ask kung meron bang mga scholarships available. Meron po ba din mga units required? I have good college grades and graduated with honors but I still have to take the NMAT. CIM is my school of choice kung may pera lang ako. Second choice is MSU pero I believe my chances of getting in are pretty slim. Thanks po.

hello, di naman lahat ng schools may nirerequire na supplementary subjects before entering medicine :) Pero I do think it is really a risk considering na maninibago ka sa subjects mo. I do suggest na you do some readings on basic sciences-- chemistry, psychology, konting anatomy while applying for medschool para di ka masyado ma-schock. Pero I'm sure kaya mo yan. :)

Hi! malayo sayo pero may NMAT scholarships na inooffer si Manila Theological College. And I do think na yung students with latin honors ay free tuition na rin. :)

I also worked muna before I decided na tumuloy ng medcine. Mahirap mag--adjust sa una pero I do think na worth it naman yung pag-quit ko sa work. hehe.
