At MedCrave we believe that knowledge should be shared. We also believe that help should be given to the worthy and needy. Thus, MedCrave Group (MCG) offers several scholar awards to the Authors who have contributed actively towards the development of MedCrave and enriching the scientific society.
MedCrave aims to provide support to researchers who have chosen a career in the field of research by providing them with partial monetary support during the period of their research.
