Scholarships for Health Care Majors

Health Care is the fastest growing employment field, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This means it is a great field to get a major in. But health care-related degrees can be expensive, not to mention a lot of work. Luckily, there are huge numbers of scholarships available to students of the health professions to allow them to stop worrying about costs and focus on their studies. Corporations in the healthcare industry, such as pharmaceutical companies and insurance providers, sponsor many scholarships. National and local nonprofit organizations also award scholarships to students pursuing a career in health care. To apply, you may need to meet a minimum GPA requirement, and you may also be asked to submit a personal statement and proof of financial need. Check out some of the health care scholarships available from the list below.
