Educational debt is a growing challenge for our next generation of physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, public health professionals, and other health care providers. You can change the future for bright students, regardless of economic background, through scholarship support.
The University of South Florida attracts diverse and academically accomplished students who are drawn to our strong interprofessional health programs. However student debt burdens future health professionals. Without scholarship support, the annual cost of attendance including tuition, fees and living expenses can range from $26,000 for undergraduate study to $88,000 for the MD SELECT program. These financial challenges can confine their career path based on potential income, or cause them to choose another profession entirely.
While USF Health has worked to limit or eliminate tuition increases, philanthropic scholarship support can make an important difference for students considering how to pay for their education.
Scholarships play an important role in recruiting the most talented students to USF Health, affecting college rankings and elevating the reputation of the institution. Campus diversity is enhanced by scholarship awards based on economic status, first generation in college, demonstrated ability to overcome hardship or disadvantages, and leadership and volunteer activities. Scholarships can also strengthen individual programs of study or attract students to USF from specific geographic areas.
You can create a named operating (expendable) scholarship for a minimum gift of $5,000, or a named endowed scholarship that will last in perpetuity for a minimum of $25,000. Call today at (813) 974-9776 for more information.
Help us give tomorrow’s health professionals one more reason to choose USF Health by creating a scholarship today.
