MCPHS aspires to enroll students who have outstanding ability, academic promise, and a passion for healthcare. We recognize that a college education is one of the most important investments a student will make in his/her lifetime. To this end,our merit award program helps put a healthcare education within reach of qualified applicants.
All awards are based on academic qualifications and date of application submission. Merit awards are made without regard to financial need. There is no separate application for these awards, as merit scholarships are awarded at the time of admission. Additionally, these scholarships are renewable every year as long as the student maintains full-time enrollment and a specific grade point average that varies based on the award.
All applicants are automatically considered for scholarship with their application. We have a rolling admission process, and the sooner you submit your application, the more favorably you will be considered both for admission and scholarship.
Please note: We have priority scholarship application deadlines:
