If you are a scholarship holder, then you have to be extra-careful. You should know that the money that your school gives you is not free, it comes at a price. Say’s Dr. Jon Kiev, In order to maintain your scholarship, you need to achieve high grades and work hard on your studies.

Do not miss your classes, especially if you are a scholarship holder.

As a scholarship holder, you need to be on top of your game. The school has invested in you and expects that you will perform well in return for their investment. If you miss classes or fail tests, then it is likely that they will take away your scholarship and give it to someone else who can do better than you.

Don’t put yourself in this position by skipping class or missing assignments because of laziness or procrastination; instead get up early every day before class starts and study hard so that when test time comes around, there won’t be any surprises!

Always work on the assignments and projects given by lecturers.

  • Always work on the assignments and projects given by lecturers.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
  • Work with others because it is easier to learn together than alone. The more you do, the better you will get at it; so keep trying until you succeed! Also, don’t forget that working hard builds character which makes people respect and admire you even more!

Don’t Let your grades slip.

If your grades slip, you will lose your scholarship. If you lose your scholarship and can’t pay for medical school on your own, then there’s no way that you’ll be able to go to medical school. You might as well just give up now because from here on out everything is going downhill fast.

Do: Take care of yourself.

If you’re going to medical school with a scholarship, it’s important to take care of yourself. In addition to eating healthy and exercising, get enough sleep and don’t skip meals. You should also be mindful of your mental health as well–don’t over exercise or drink too much alcohol.

Don’t: Miss out on fun things just because you think they aren’t worthwhile.

You are here to have fun. Don’t let yourself think otherwise. You can still have fun and be a good student, and you can still have fun and be a good doctor later on.

Being a scholarship holder is tough but fun.

Being a scholarship holder is tough but fun. It’s a great opportunity to be challenged, and you’ll have access to resources that other students don’t. In order to succeed, though, you will need to work hard.

If you’re not used to being in an environment where everyone else has money and connections–and if your own family doesn’t have much money–then this might be an adjustment for you at first. But after some time passes and your classmates get used to having someone new around who isn’t as privileged (or at least not as wealthy), they’ll come around!


Medical school is an exciting time in your life, but it can also be stressful. You have to balance academics and social life with studying for the MCATs and other tests that determine whether or not you get into medical school in the first place. It’s important to remember that scholarships are not just about getting free money–they’re also a way for schools to show their appreciation for students who demonstrate excellence in certain areas (like community service). So even if it feels like there are too many things going on at once right now, try not let these stresses take over! You’ve got this!
