Advice for Applying to the Global MedPrep Scholars Program

The main application for the Fall 2017 Global MedPrep Scholars Program is now open. Students will have until February 1, 2017 to complete their application before any of them will be reviewed. Interviews will be offered in February and students will be notified of acceptance on March 1. 

To apply to the program, click on the Global MedPrep Scholars Program tab above and then the red button in the right hand column. You must complete a very brief pre-application first. This too can be found in the right hand column of the Global MedPrep Scholars Program page.

Below is some helpful advice to completing your application...

First, don’t panic when you see how many components are required for the full application. You have until Feburary 1, 2017 to complete it. With this being said, we strongly recommend that you log on to the main application found on the Global Medprep Scholars Program web page NOW (just click the red button “Apply Here”) and get the process started. Once you start the process the Office of Overseas Programs will know that you’ve started the application.
Second, contact your professors NOW to have them complete an online recommendation (see the directions on the main application). Two online recommendations are required. Ask them if they can complete your recommendation before you leave for winter break. It’s basically a checklist so it should be easy for them to complete rather quickly.
Third, start working through the application a little at a time with your goal to complete it by the time you leave for winter break. If you do this, you’ll feel excited about having this done before you return to St. Louis in January. Just do a little bit each day. 
Questions regarding the application should be sent to Carrie Canham in the Office of Overseas Programs. Her email is
Good luck!
