Test Preparation Scholarships
We strive to make academic resources accessible to as many people as possible through free textbooks /tutorial resources and affordable test prep courses. We also offer scholarships to students who may not otherwise be able to afford a top quality test preparation program. Applications are currently open for up to full tuition scholarships to the MCAT Ladder test preparation programs. An overview of the test prep programs and scholarships are provided below.

About the Proton Guru Ladder
Our Philosophy - Climb
After each course up the subject ladder you will face comprehensive exams combining the knowledge from previous courses until you have slowly trained yourself to put it all together to face down the real exams!
We think this approach is more effective and less stressful than trying to frenetically learn from many different subject areas at one time.
The courses include video lessons, reading, links to other free resources online if you need even more training, and numerous practice problems. The practice problems range from short ~10-question quizzes to comprehensive course quizzes (some over 200 questions) and the ultimately full-length practice exam.
If you would like to a course in the MCAT Ladder program, you can enroll, in the full MCAT Organic Chemistry course for free to see if you like it. Identically-formatted free PCAT Organic Chemistry and DAT Organic Chemistry course are also avalable. Subsequent courses have progressively more practice problems as you complete more subjects, but this short course gives you an idea of how the other courses are laid out.
Our Philosophy - Uplift
Our logo illustrates our inspiration for this program: for every MCAT course purchased we give a full scholarship to another student who may not otherwise be able to access an elite test-preparation training program like these. In this way people already climbing the ladder of success are helping the next group along the way. We believe in making education and the medical profession accessible to everyone! Current scholarship opportunities are updated below!
