BeMo and SortSmart Partner to Offer Bi-Yearly $1,000 Scholarships to Pre-medical and Medical Students
The scholarship will be offered twice every year with application deadlines on May 31st, and October 31st.
At BeMo and SortSmart, 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 $1,000 scholarship to those in need. The scholarship will be offered twice every year with application deadlines on May 31st, and October 31st.
All full-time pre-medical (any undergraduate discipline) or medical students in good academic standing are eligible.
Applicants must complete the application procedure outlined below and agree to the eligibility requirements and selection criteria to be eligible.
All applicants must complete and submit the following:
1. A 6-minute BeMo survey about their academic experience.
2. A short online 15-question SortSmart test designed to assess a suite of key characteristics that we believe are essential to becoming a future physician and an advocate for diversity.

The SortSmart test submissions are scored based on characteristics we believe are important for the profession.
Note that the information we collect in your survey is not part of the selection process, however, we may use the anonymized survey and SortSmart results in our research to help create a fairer and more scientific medical school admissions screening process. We place enormous value on confidentiality and privacy and your information will be protected and not shared with any third parties.
The winning applicant will be required to submit a short video outlining their desire to pursue a career in medicine that will be used on our websites when announcing the winner.
