The PA Foundation is now accepting PA student scholarship applications. This year, the PA Foundation is offering two scholarship application cycles based on expected graduation month from PA school. The first cycle is open to applicants who meet the general eligibility criteria and have an expected PA school graduation date between the months of January and June (any year). The second cycle – for applicants with a July through December graduation date – opens June 15.
PA Foundation scholarships are awarded to PA students who demonstrate a passion for PA leadership and health care-related community service as well as a record of high academic performance. Applicants must:
- Be student members of AAPA
- Attend an ARC-PA-accredited PA program
- Be in good academic standing
- Have successfully completed at least one term of PA studies
For the first cycle of 2020, the Foundation will award 17 scholarships in seven different scholarship categories, ranging from $1,000 to $2,500.
Additional scholarship-specific eligibility criteria and application instructions are provided on the PA Foundation website. The deadline to apply for the first cycle is March 13.
