2021 UnorthoDOCx Scholarship Winners
Christiana Oshotse- Griffin Excellence Award
Graduate of Duke University (2019)
"I am immensely grateful to the entire UnorthoDOCx community for making this scholarship available. Over the course of the medical school application process, I amassed thousands of dollars of debt to pay for MCAT prep and application materials. The support this scholarship offers will allow me to pay for all this medical school application process has cost me. Navigating this process as a low-income, first-generation student has not been easy, but I am so grateful for all the support UnorthoDOCx provides, and I look forward to contributing to this community moving forward.."

Madiha Tariq- Inspiration Award
"The scholarship definitely has more than a monetary value. As a non-traditional student, it is already daunting and the scholarships help to validate our struggle and path to medicine when you feel there is little to no support. Even though the journey is long and arduous, you are supported. The scholarship also reminds me to "pay it forward" when I reach my goal as you are an inspiration to someone else as well."
Kushi Patel- Inspiration Award
"Receiving this scholarship means I can continue my non-traditional journey to medical school. I am incredibly honored to receive this recognition from those who have contributed so much support and encouragement to my experience as a nontraditional pre-med."
Victoria Callan- MCATPrep.com Award
Graduate of Excelsior College
"The scholarship was a large help in assisting me with prepping for the MCAT especially as a non-trad pre-medical student . I attended Excelsior College in Albany, New York along with Doane University to prepare along with the MCAT bundle. I graduated yesterday from my 2nd undergraduate degree and look forward to taking my MCAT on May 14th !"
Yvonne Antoine- MCATPrep.com Award

“This scholarship means so much to me! In pre-Med the MCAT is such an important test. Questioning where to start is normal. Receiving help and guidance is so helpful! This scholarship will help me to begin my MCAT journey as well as my journey to medical school.”
