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 $8.3 million in scholarships have been awarded to nearly 15,000 students pursuing degrees in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology and 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.
