The premedical advisory committee has one Kaplan Test Prep Scholarship available to award for students interested in taking a course to prepare for the MCAT, DAT, OAT, PCAT, or GRE. This scholarship can be awarded to current Illinois Tech students or alumni. This scholarship can be used for future courses, is for the full cost of the course, and is good for the following Kaplan programs:
- MCAT On Demand 6 months, Live Online 6 months, or In Person 6 months
- GRE On Demand and Live Online
- PCAT Self-Paced
- DAT Limitless — 3 months
- OAT Limitless — 3 months
To apply for this scholarship, you must submit a one- or two-page essay on what you have been doing to prepare yourself for your chosen health-profession school and why you feel the Kaplan test prep will better prepare you for the exam. Please address your current efforts to prepare yourself (shadowing and other relevant experiences), a current unofficial Illinois Tech transcript, and future plans. All materials are to be submitted to Dr. Kathryn Spink by noon Friday, September 15. If awarded the scholarship must be redeemed by December 31, 2023; i.e., you must register for your course before the end of the year but may take a course next year. For any questions, contact Dr. Spink at firstname.lastname@example.org.
