Medigo ScholarshipWho is MEDIGO?

MEDIGO is an online medical travel platform that aims to disrupt the global healthcare industry by empowering patients who desire affordable treatment, access to higher quality facilities and clinicians, or to reduce their waiting times. Launched in Berlin in 2014, MEDIGO now lists almost 400 clinics and hospitals in 15 different countries.

Why choose medical travel?

Inflated medical bills, long waiting times and inadequate standards of care have resulted in many US patients seeking care abroad. Through price transparency and a commitment to opening up access healthcare, MEDIGO removes the barriers that prevent patients from obtaining the care they need.

Our scholarship:

We are offering a scholarship award of $2,000, with the aim of supporting one promising student who is interested in pursuing a career in marketing. MEDIGO knows how hard it can be to be both creative and effective in the field of marketing, especially when dealing with a crucial topic like healthcare. This is why we want to award those who have the talent to create something truly special.
In forming your application, you’ll need to consider current healthcare trends and how MEDIGO addresses them, whilst keeping our core values of transparency and quality firmly in mind. Above all, it is important to remember who the MEDIGO platform is primarily built for: patients.
