Awards and Scholarships

The occupational therapy department informs students about potential opportunities for awards and scholarships as they become available. In addition to information included on this site, students are sent information from the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance about endowed scholarships in early spring. Students can also find information about scholarships available through the college at All students who qualify for the scholarships are encouraged to apply.

Students should take time to update their student information forms in the occupational therapy department periodically. Opportunities arise for faculty members to nominate students for awards and the Student Activities Update form are used as a source of detail when writing recommendations. The more complete your student information forms, the more the nominating faculty member has to include in the recommendation, so it is to your advantage to update.

All information about available scholarships should be sent to the department chair by mail, or by email to Students wishing for more information should contact the department chair via email, or in person.
