Scholarships available through this fund provide critical financial support to underserved students.
Scholarships can make an extraordinary difference for students in need — including those who are the first in their families to attend college. This fund supports scholarships for students in the Department of Rehabilitation Science—part of the School of Public Health and Health Professions.
Rehabilitation science is about helping people live healthier, more active and independent lives. The field encompasses several disciplines—including occupational therapy and physical therapy—devoted to optimizing the quality of life for people whose functional capabilities are limited due to injury, disease, age or disability.
The department is dedicated to advancing knowledge through research in the disciplines of occupational therapy and physical therapy; developing students and practitioners in these and other health professions; and developing meaningful interdisciplinary collaborations in education, research and practice that promote and improve the health of people across the region, country and world.
The department’s programs have been recognized as among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings of graduate schools.
