Support the Health Sciences Academic Fund for Excellence

The Health Sciences Academic Fund for Excellence supports student education in the College of Health Sciences. Students in our professional programs spend hundreds of hours beyond the classroom in clinical settings. These experiences help prepare our students well for careers in healthcare – the job placement rate for nearly all CHS programs is at 98 percent or higher – but does not position them well to work while enrolled full-time. As a result, many CHS students often graduate with extensive student debt.

The need for student scholarships is great. Currently, CHS awards scholarships based on need and academic success. Additional support for the fund would make is possible to financially assist more students and make more opportunities available. For example, the college would like to have scholarship dollars available to recruit incoming students and support education abroad.

In addition to providing scholarships to students based on need and academic success, CHS is able to make emergency funds available to students. Students can apply any time during the school year when they are in or near a crisis which will impact their education. One student was able to receive support when she took a leave of absence from her part-time job to care for a family member critically injured in a car accident. These funds help stabilize a student in crisis so that their education is not interrupted – or worse – ended as a result.
