2017-2018 Scholarships for Therapists Application will open February 18, 2017
Since 1955, National AMBUCS, Inc. has been awarding scholarships to therapy students in their junior/senior year in a bachelor’s degree program, or a graduate program leading to a master’s or doctoral degree. To date, more than $8.5 million in scholarships have been awarded to over 15,000 students pursuing degrees in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology and hearing audiology.
Over $150,000 is awarded annually with individual awards ranging from $500 to $1,500. There is one two-year award in the amount of $6,000. Award monies are deposited each semester to the student’s credit account with the financial aid office of the educational institution.
Students must be accepted in an accredited program by the appropriate health therapy profession authority in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, or hearing audiology. Assistant programs are not eligible. Awards are based on financial need, US citizenship, commitment to local community, character for compassion and integrity, and career objectives.
National AMBUCS, Inc. accepts applications for its scholarship program from February 18 until April 15, annually.
On April 28, 2017, the semi-finalists will be chosen from the students who submitted applications and a list will be posted to this page. We will also email each semi-finalist at the address provided on their application. Ultimately, it is each student’s responsibility to make themselves aware of their status.
We will post further directions for semi-finalists at that time. (We will ask semi-finalists to submit three supporting documents to aid us in choosing final winners.)
Final scholarship winners will be announced in late June, 2017.
