Deadline for Scholarships:

To become eligible for DAHS scholarships, submit your program application.

To apply for the Merit Scholarship, applications must be submitted on or before December 8, 2020 and meet all UNC Graduate School criteria for consideration. The Merit Scholarship provides full tuition and a monthly stipend to work with the Division for the first year in the program.

Funding Information

Each year, the division can nominate exceptional applicants for consideration of Fellowships offered through the UNC Graduate School. To be considered for a Fellowship Nomination, applicants should submit their completed applications in the Slate system by December 8, 2020. Fellowship nominations are made in January, and decisions are issued by the Graduate School in the Spring.
Incoming students are also eligible for assistantship and scholarship awards offered through the Department of Allied Health Sciences and the CRMH Division. Applications for these scholarships and awards are provided once the applicant is admitted to the program. The number of awards given each year depends on the funds allocated to the division. Decisions on division awards for incoming students are typically made at or by the beginning of the Fall semester of program entry. Since one must be accepted to the program before applying for these scholarships and awards, applicants are encouraged to submit their completed application earlier than the April 13, 2021 deadline.
