Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • What does an AMBOSS Access Scholarship cover?
    An AMBOSS Access Scholarship covers a significant portion of the AMBOSS access package costs. Scholarships may be eligible for an extension as we re-assess the COVID-19 situation later this year, but are not guaranteed.
  • I have never used AMBOSS and do not have an account; am I eligible?
    No – before you apply for a scholarship you must make a free AMBOSS trial account first. As soon as you create and verify your account, our team will be able to process your application.

  • I am already an AMBOSS user; am I eligible?
    Yes – any physician or student currently or previously enrolled in a medical university who has been significantly impacted by COVID-19 is eligible to receive a scholarship. However, please read the limitations on extensions in the question below.

  • I applied and did not receive a confirmation email; what should I do?
    First, check your spam folder and make sure it didn’t land there! Try checking your inbox for the date you sent your application and the email address – if you still cannot find your email, please write to us and we can check the status.
    Please do not fill out the application multiple times before troubleshooting, as this can make it tricky to track down the status of your application.

  • What if I’ve already made an AMBOSS purchase? What limits apply to extensions?
    If your current AMBOSS access package expires on or before June 30th, 2020, you are eligible to apply for a Scholarship to extend your access; however, please stand in solidarity with us and keep in mind that the AMBOSS Scholarship is primarily meant for students who are unable to purchase AMBOSS currently or in the near future due to financial hardships, particularly related to the current COVID-19 situation

  • Can I use the scholarship later than it has been provided to me?
    No, all scholarships must be used shortly after being received. Our program is meant for temporary, immediate assistance. If you don't need the help just yet, then we recommend you wait until it's necessary!

  • Will I receive a refund?
    No. Refunds cannot be offered towards past purchases.

  • When will I hear back from you? Can I have access right away?
    Applicants will hear back from us within two weeks of submitting their application, and we’ll aim to get back to you sooner than later. Please monitor your inbox for potential follow-up questions or a personal interview request, that may be scheduled on a case-by-case basis to assess eligibility.

  • Do I have any obligations once I receive the scholarship?
    Nope. Our main priority is to provide support.

  • Do I need to be a student? I am a physician and need access.
    We also support physicians who demonstrate the need for a scholarship. Especially during these times, we want to ensure each physician has the most up-to-date, accurate information on diagnoses, treatments, etc.
