At DocuTAP, we love a good challenge, especially one with a great payoff. Last year we launched the DocuTAP Scholarship Program, awarding five $1,000 scholarships to college students who showed their passion for innovation, forward thinking, healthcare, and a better tomorrow by telling us how technology can impact healthcare for good.

We got lots of great entries from all over the country—so we’re looking forward to doing it again this year. Five more deserving students. Five more $1,000 scholarships.

To apply, submit a scholarship essay telling us how technology could disrupt healthcare as we know it. We’re looking for bold ideas and solutions that challenge conventional thinking and go beyond everyday processes and products. So dream big, consider all the possibilities, and write on.

Hot Tips

  • Be original and creative. Use your imagination to present your crazy, unconventional (or even unattainable) health tech ideas. Wow us with your wit, wisdom, and off-the-charts thoughts.
  • Be interesting. If it’s not something you would like to read, we probably won’t want to read it either.
  • Grammar matters. Proofread. Edit. Proofread again.
