Not every student who attends the University has their own or family resources to support their study program. For some students, government grants or institutional scholarships help Perhaps loans are an option. But often students need a more to make ends meet. They rely on dollars from philanthropic investors. Scholarships may be the difference between staying in classes and having to leave or postpone their education.
Thoughtful, generous donors have established more than 39 endowed scholarships at the University that are a lifeline for students. These benefactors realize they can make the difference one person at a time. They know that scholarships validate students. They understand that education at the Adventist University of Health Science prepares health care professionals that practice healthcare as ministry make the world a better place.
In the 2014-2015 academic year more than 100 students received a scholarship that helped them stay in school at the University. More scholarships would mean that the other nearly 100 students who applied and were eligible could receive an award.
Faculty Development Fund
Faculty often cannot afford the high cost of doctoral degree tuition on their salaries. Yet for many, this is their dream. This desire also aligns with the University’s strategic goal of a faculty that is 100% doctorally prepared. This new fund will assist current faculty to continue their academic studies at the doctoral level.
