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.

The scholarship will be offered twice every year with application deadlines on May 31st, and October 31st.

We’re an energetic academic consulting firm, comprised of a team of researchers and professionals, who use a proven evidence-based and scientific approach to help prospective students with career path development and admissions to undergraduate, graduate and professional programs (e.g. medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, etc.)

We also believe that every student deserves access to higher education, regardless of his or her socioeconomic, racial or cultural background. Our goal is to create ridiculously useful (and scientifically sound) programs and tools that work and provide more than just some trivial information like other "admissions consulting companies" out there! We want to make sure everyone has a fair chance of admissions to highly competitive professional programs because when admissions is open to all, society benefits.

We do whatever it takes to come up with creative solutions…and then implement like mad scientists. We’re passionate about mentoring our students and obsessed with delivering insanely useful educational programs and we go where others dare not to explore.
