Let’s see the experience of Daniell Edward Raharjo from University of Indonesia
Daniell, can you describe the application process in brief ?
AMBOSS collaborated with Asian Medical Students’ Association International (an organization I’m part of) to select candidates for the scholarship. We had to submit our CV and a brief motivation for the selection. Two best candidates are chosen per country to be given the scholarship.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. Could be your story. Feel free to write about anything fun, deep, emotional or motivating!
I am currently a fourth-year medical student in Universitas Indonesia—the oldest medical school in the nation. Soon I will be taking a year abroad to Newcastle University in the UK to pursue my Masters’s degree. I have always been passionate about medical science and how I can impact others with it, even before I decided to be a doctor! I am interested in everything explaining how the body works. I sincerely hope that soon I will be able to help save many lives and be a positive influence on my community—even the world.

Why do you think you were selected?
They were selected on the basis of academic excellence and activity in the organization. I believe I may have been selected on the basis of academic merit as I have been fortunately chosen as the Most Outstanding Student in the Faculty of Medicine. Adding to that I am also a member of the executive committee in the organization (AMSA International) so that may have influenced the selection too. Regardless, I am very lucky and grateful to have been given this opportunity.
If you’re a past scholar, can you tell us a bit about your experience? Others enter N/A.
The AMBOSS Global Education Scholarship has given me a great opportunity to enrich my medical education as it offers me 6 months of free access to quality resources. I can learn many things through their apps which provide high-yield information and then test my comprehension through the many quizzes and assessments that AMBOSS provides. Their experience so far has been wonderful!
Any advice you would like to give future applicants?
Don’t be afraid to try a scholarship—especially if it’s just on the basis of fear of rejection! You’ll never realize how truly capable and exceptional you are until you take that first step to try.
Daniell is interested in guiding and mentoring applicants.
To summarize, the Amboss Education Scholarship is mainly for medical students . It provides a financial assistance to all the aspiring medical students and gives them many opportunities to network with different doctors and students around the globe.
