AMBOSS Access Scholarships
Apply for an AMBOSS Access Scholarship
A Global Education Fund Worth $2 Million
Our Global Education Fund is providing $2 million worth of AMBOSS access packages (with access to the Library, Qbank, and Analysis features, including mobile Apps for Android and iOS) to students who have an urgent need for resource support, or have faced long-standing significant financial barriers to their medical education.
Our mission is to empower future doctors, regardless of financial background. We believe deeply that crucial medical knowledge should be accessible to all those who seek it. This is why we provide support in the form of resources to students and medical professionals through the AMBOSS Access Scholarship Program.
Established in response to the challenges our global community was confronted with during the outbreak of COVID-19, the Global Education Fund represents an ongoing effort to equip students with high-quality medical knowledge and empower them to continue their medical training and serve their communities with the best possible care.
To apply for a scholarship, we ask you to fill out the form on this page and give us some insight as to why you are seeking the support of an AMBOSS Access Scholarship. Please note, we have a limited number of full and partial scholarships available.
Please read the FAQs listed below for information on eligibility and distribution of AMBOSS Access Scholarships.
What does an AMBOSS Access Scholarship cover?
- An AMBOSS Access Scholarship covers a significant portion of the AMBOSS access package costs.
- Scholarships already granted may be eligible for extensions as we re-assess the situation later this year, but are not guaranteed.
I have never used AMBOSS and do not have an account; am I eligible?
I am already an AMBOSS user; am I eligible?
Yes – any physician or student currently or previously enrolled in a medical university is eligible to receive a scholarship. However, please read the limitations on extensions in the question below.
What if I’ve already made an AMBOSS purchase? What limits apply to extensions?
If your current AMBOSS access package expires on or before September 30th 2020, you are eligible to apply for a Scholarship to extend your access; however, please stand in solidarity with us and keep in mind that the AMBOSS Scholarship is primarily meant for students who are unable to purchase AMBOSS currently or in the near future due to financial challenges, particularly related to the economic impacts of or other long-standing financial barriers.
How are scholarship decisions made?
Every scholarship applicant and their situation is unique and different, and our team does our very best to distribute scholarships in a fair, empathetic, and equitable way. We want to ensure that everyone who needs access to AMBOSS can have it!
We are committed to improving global health and equitable access to healthcare and medical knowledge worldwide. For this reason, we also aim to give extra support to applicants who are studying in low-income countries and/or providing crucial access to healthcare in parts of the world with fewer resources. For this reason, we particularly encourage students and physicians from low-income countries to apply for an access scholarship.
Everyone in need of additional resource support, or for whom the cost of AMBOSS is prohibitive, is welcome to apply. However, please understand that we cannot grant every scholarship request, and preference may be given based on need. Requests will be evaluated on an individual basis and granted as long as the Global Education Fund resources are still available.
I applied and did not receive a confirmation email; what should I do?
First, check your spam folder and make sure it didn’t land there! Try checking your inbox for the date you sent your application and the email address firstname.lastname@example.org – if you still cannot find your email, please write to us and we can check the status.
Please do not fill out the application multiple times before troubleshooting, as this can make it tricky to track down the status of your application.
Will I receive a refund?
No. Refunds cannot be offered towards past purchases.
When will I hear back from you? Can I have access right away?
As we expect to receive a high volume of applications, please allow us time to process and review each application before responding. You can expect to hear back from us within two weeks of submitting your application, and we’ll aim to get back to you sooner if possible. Please monitor your inbox for potential follow-up questions or a personal interview request, that may be scheduled on a case-by-case basis to assess eligibility.
Do I have any obligations once I receive the scholarship?
Nope. Our main priority is to provide support. Thank you for trusting in us to do so!
Do I need to be a student? I am a physician and need access.
Yes, we also support physicians who demonstrate need for a scholarship. Especially during these times, we want to ensure each physician has the most up-to-date, accurate information on diagnoses, treatments, etc.
