Several entrance scholarships are available for students at MMC. These scholarships have been kindly provided through the generosity of members of MyungSung Church in Seoul, Korea, as well as other Christians and churches in Ethiopia and abroad. Their aim is to allow the excellent medical education provided by MMC to be offered to special students and those with financial needs.
Several types of scholarships are available:
Korean War Veterans scholarship (**)
(*) number of these scholarships will vary based on the donations from abroad each year.
(**) number of these scholarships will vary depending upon suitable funding from MCM
Presentation of Korean War Veterans Association membership ID is required.
All scholarship students must have a GPA ≥ 2.5 from the prior Module to qualify for scholarship assistance for the next Module.
Students who have a cumulative GPA < 2.5 from the prior period of study and are granted a scholarship must subsequently maintain a GPA ≥ 2.5 from the prior Module to qualify for scholarship assistance for the next Module.
Students who lose their scholarship because their GPA is < 2.5 for a Module may be considered for reinstatement of their scholarship once their Module GPA is ≥ 2.5 and scholarship aid is available. Once a student loses his/her scholarship assistance there is no guarantee made by MMC that the scholarship will be reinstated
All scholarship applicants must successfully complete the MMC admission process and register in order to qualify for scholarships. Korean War Veterans and MCM scholarship candidates will come through each organization. Interest in scholarship based on financial need must be expressed at the time of the admissions interview, and must be formally requested in writing with proper documentation before registration. No acceptance of any student to MMC implies that the applicant will receive any scholarship assistance aid.
Scholarships will be determined by the MMC Scholarship Committee, which will include representatives of both MyungSung Church and MMC.
In exceptional situations and if funds are available, the Scholarship Committee will consider additional scholarship applications from students whose financial situation has deteriorated significantly during the previous year. Such exceptional applications must be submitted to the committee before each new academic year’s registration.
All scholarship candidates will be informed before registration of the status of their scholarship application. The amount of the scholarship will be deducted from the school bill payable each module.
All MMC students who receive scholarships at any time between the beginning of their Premed Module to the completing and passing of the Qualifying examination for the Internship Attachment have a obligation back to MMC and/or MCM the day forward after they successfully graduate from Myungsung Medical College. This obligation does not exclude them or become a substitute for any other obligations that they may owe other sponsoring institutions, organizations or governmental entities including the Federal Republic of Ethiopia and, in the case of foreign students, their own government.
All MMC students who receive scholarships at any time between the beginning of their Premed Module to the completing and passing of the Qualifying examination for the Internship Attachment have an obligation to serve MCM/MMC for the following periods of time:
Their obligation back to MCM and/or MMC is defined as follows:
Failure to fulfill the obligation incurred by the student from their Internship Attachment to MCM/MMC for any reason automatically grants MCM the right to pursue this matter in court. If after licensing, the medical doctor declines to serve either at MCM/MMC or with the Ministry of Health, he or she is obliged to return the entire amount of funds granted for their scholarship plus a penalty of 50% to MCM. It also means that the Registrar will not issue any transcripts for the student until the obligation is fulfilled.
