About the scholarship
Two students per class will be chosen to receive the Paul Spear Appalachia Scholarship. The scholarship is based on the applicant’s desire to provide healthcare in the Southeastern Ohio and/or Appalachia area and financial need. The award covers half of the tuition for both the didactic and clinical phases of the Program as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA throughout the Program. In repayment of the scholarship, the student commits to a one-for-one service agreement to practice in the Southeastern Ohio and/or Appalachia area for each year of the scholarship award (2 year maximum).
