How to Apply

Department of Allied Health Sciences Awards

To be considered for the June C. Alott Leadership Development Award, you will need to submit an essay via the electronic link and upload a recommendation letter.  In the essay, please describe your past, present, and/or proposed community service.  "Community Service" is broadly understood as making helpful connections with people to improve a person's or community's quality of life, to bring comfort, or to to broaden one's perspective.     Community service may be in any arena and is not restricted to health projects.

For the Thorpe/Mitchell Diversity Leadership Award you will need to write a supplemental essay telling us about you, your history, and your professional goals after completing your degree. Students in the CRMH, OT, PA, PT, or SPHS programs are eligible to apply for the Thorpe/Mitchell award this cycle. 

    Complete and electronically submit the online Allied Health Sciences Departmental Scholarship Application link below after reading all of the required information.  The applications for the 2017-18 academic year will open on March 15th, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. and close on May 1, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.  This year students in the CRMH, DPT/OT/, and SPHS divisions may apply for the Thorpe/Mitchell award.  

    Only students who have been officially admitted to a program in the Department of Allied Health Sciences may complete the online application.

    • Complete the 2017-18 FAFSA using code 002974 if your scholarship requires it. We recommend that all students do it. You can use estimates to complete your FAFSA if you have not completed your taxes.

    • Prepare your written statement ahead of time (again, for scholarships that require these).
    • Update your resume and save a copy as PDF or Word.

    Step 2

    You will provide additional information electronically via the online application. We recommending gathering as much information as possible

    • Demographic information
    • Academic program information
    • Scholarship(s) for which you wish to apply (You may apply to all three if you are eligible).
    • Outside assistance you expect to receive (examples: parents, VA benefits, private scholarships)
    • Information on dependents

    STEP 3 (UPDATED 3/6/17):

    Your personal essay or supplemental statement should include the following responses to enable the Financial Aid Committee to review your qualifications for the scholarships: (1) identifying information (name, division within the Department of Allied Health Sciences, and year in the program), (2) your interests as related to the award you are applying to receive, and (3) why you feel qualified for the scholarship(s) for which you are applying.  

     STEP 4:
