What degree programs are you currently accepting?Currently, the Scholars Program is accepting: Medical Dental Nursing Pharmacy Occupational Therapy (MOT, OT) Social Work (MSW, DSW) Public Health (MPH, DrPH) Optometry Psychology (Graduate Level)
How many hours are required for the program?Program participants are required to have at least 40 didactic and 40 community-based experiential learning hours per year, for the two years of the program.
I have more than 2 years left in my degree program, do I still qualify?If you are a medical, dental, pharmacy, or nursing student, you are eligible to participate in the Scholars Program, even if you have more than two years remaining in your degree program. Upon enrollment, you'll be expected to sustain your involvement in the Scholars Program until you complete your degree without the necessity of completing additional didactic hours. However, you will need to submit community-based experiential learning hours during these additional years. This presents an excellent opportunity to leverage our program, enabling you to enrich your resume with a broader array of experiences and skills beyond what you might achieve in a two-year timeframe.
