  • Be current pre-medical undergraduates or medical students (MD or DO), or medical students who have graduated in the spring of 2020 or after
    • NOTE: Scholarships awarded to recent medical school graduates will be made payable to the recipient directly and the award amount is considered taxable income by the IRS
  • Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent)

Employees and children of employees of GoodRx are ineligible.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Up to 10 awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for pre-medical undergraduate and professional-level medical study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in July.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of GoodRx, Inc.. Payment is made in early August.

What changes in healthcare would you like to see, and how do you envision yourself contributing to these changes as a physician?”
