Scholarships

The Altoona Chapter of AMBUCS contributes to the future by raising funds for the AMBUCS Scholarship Program.

Since 1955, National AMBUCS, Inc. has been awarding scholarships to students pursuing a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or doctoral degree in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, or Hearing Audiology.  AMBUCS has awarded more than $8 million in scholarships to over 14,500 students!

Over $150,000 is awarded annually with individual awards ranging from $500 to $1500.  There is one two-year award in the amount of $6,000.  Award monies are deposited each semester to the student’s credit account with the financial aid office of the educational institution.

Students must be accepted in an accredited program by the appropriate health therapy profession authority in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, or hearing audiology.  Assistant programs are not eligible.  Awards are based on financial need, US citizenship, commitment to the local community, character for compassion and integrity, and career objectives.

National AMBUCS, Inc. accepts applications from February 18 until April 15, annually, and final scholarship winners are announced in late June. Click here for more information
