God Has No Border Medical Scholarship

Dr. Daniel De Cook was raised by parents who were medical missionaries in Bangladesh. All of his earliest jobs were in the mission hospital which included sorting donated goods in the warehouse, pill counting in the pharmacy, and eventually scrubbing in for surgery and functioning as a medic in the clinic. God used those experiences to permanently create a place in Dr. De Cook’s heart for medical care for the underserved. This scholarship was established to provide scholarship support to students whose lives and academic careers have been touched in a similar way by God.

Basic criteria:

  • entering freshman year
  • cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher
  • interested in pursuing a biology or pre-med major
  • students with an interest in public health, nursing or teaching biologic sciences may also be considered (not just via an M.D. degree)
  • express an interest in “giving back” through service
  • preference will be given to those coming from an underserved area (either primarily, as a national; or secondarily, as a missionary kid or similar from such an underserved area)
  • financial need is required

Renewal criteria: Students who wish to be considered for renewal must file a new application each year and will be given equal consideration with other candidates.
