Physical Therapy Scholars Award Program

Physical Therapist with PatientMerit based scholarships are awarded to applicants upon entry who meet the following criteria:

• Minimum undergraduate cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2 at the time of application
• GRE scores
• Interview performance

Each award provides an annual scholarship of up to $10,000 per year (up to $5,000 per semester). The award is applied towards tuition charges, not fees, provided that the recipient is registered as a full time DPT student, taking at least 12 credits per term. The award is renewable up to 6 semesters of study, and is applied during the fall and spring semesters only.

Award recipients who have not yet completed the baccalaureate degree will receive a provisional award. The provisional award will be activated upon receipt of the final transcript, indicating conferral of the baccalaureate degree with a final undergraduate cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2 or above. Students must be eligible for federal student aid to be considered for the award.

Students who are not selected for an award upon admission, may be considered for the award should scholarship moneys remain available after the start of the program. For these students, a DPT cumulative G.P.A. of at least 3.5 is required for consideration after the first academic semester.

Note: no combination of tuition awards may exceed 100% of the cost of tuition each semester. Tuition awards include Physical Therapy Scholars Award, graduate assistantship, and any other award (from any other source) covering tuition.
