Scholarship for Undergraduate Students in Allied Health Field

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Tufts Health Plan (THP) is pleased to announce a scholarship program available to undergraduate students pursuing a degree in the Allied Health field: nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy or a clinical management track in health sciences, who are eligible for health insurance coverage with the Group Insurance Commission (GIC).

In calendar year 2018, two individual $2,500 scholarships are available to GIC-eligible undergraduate students currently enrolled in any accredited two- or four-year public or private college or university, who have completed at a minimum one semester of classes. At least one of the student’s parents and/or a legal guardian must be enrolled in a GIC health plan; being a Tufts Health Plan member is not a requirement.

Each scholarship is merit-based. Applications will be evaluated based on the cover letter, the student’s college GPA, the essay, and a resume (if the student chooses to submit one), all of which must be received by Tufts Health Plan by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 10, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be notified by Friday, August 31, 2018.
