The Medicus program does not include a service for placement at a U.S. university. Candidates must apply individually for university admission and are asked to provide an official admission/invitation letter of the U.S. host university by the end of May 2024 at the latest. Only after receipt of a copy of an admission/invitation letter, candidates can definitely be considered for a Medicus scholarship.
If you have any questions or doubts about your eligibility or the application procedure, you can contact the Scholarship Service via email email@example.com.
