An inside look at Student Medicover’s Scholarship Program
Written by: Lydia Li
On January 16th, 2021, Student Medicover launched its first Scholarship Program to empower international students with knowledge and skills on how to run a $100 million business. Over 200 candidates applied for the program, and five outstanding students were selected at the end of the program as awardees and each won a scholarship of $1000.
What is Student Medicover’s Scholarship Program?
In this program, students learn about the various aspects of a $100 million business and understand how different departments contribute to the growth and sustainability of a business. The program lasts for 12 weeks and touches on a diversity of topics, including Business Administration, Business Accounting & Finance, Business Law, Human Resources, Information Technology, Business Development, Digital Marketing, and Customer Information System. Students learned and taught the equivalent of a college course in 3 months, and demonstrated their understanding and application of knowledge through weekly quizzes and individual projects.
Why we organize the program?
As the coronavirus pandemic spreads out the world, international students found it is getting more difficult to find employment in the U.S. after graduation. Through the Scholarship Program, we would like to provide an opportunity for the students to gain hands-on experience, so they will be more confident, determined, and prepared to enter the job market with relevant knowledge and skills.
