Even though the application process may be time-consuming, it is generally worth the effort. Please take time to read the General Scholarship Information
that includes tips for applying for scholarships. The scholarship applications tend to be similar so the first one will take the longest and then it will become easier.
It is important that you read the eligibility criteria and furnish ALL the required documentation. Be sure to follow these instructions to request a recommendation/reference from a School of Health Care Professions faculty member:
Complete a Faculty Recommendation Form and Letter of Recommendation Release Form when requesting a scholarship recommendation/reference from any faculty. Be sure to give the completed form to the faculty member when you are asking them to be a reference, or e-mail the form to the faculty member after you personally ask the person for a recommendation/reference.
Make sure you have a current Personal Data Form
in your file in the SHCP Office. These forms are used by faculty when writing letters of recommendation for CP applications, scholarships, etc. Be sure to include all your accomplishments!
If you receive a scholarship, please let us know!! We like to share the "good news." Good Luck!!! If you have any questions, please contact the SHCP Office.
