Allied Health External Scholarships

Many agencies, employers, military, and service organizations award funds to students.

Let the Office of Financial Aid know, in writing, if you are awarded scholarships from sources other than Emory. The combination of all sources of funding you receive may not exceed your eligibility or the cost to attend Emory for the academic year. Emory is required to make adjustments for external scholarships and resources if a student's demonstrated eligibility (or total cost of education) has already been met. To the extent possible, it is our policy to adjust self-help awards before reducing grant.

All checks for these awards must be sent to the Office of Financial Aid, as awards are posted as a payment to your student account. It is Emory’s policy to divide external scholarships equally between fall and spring semesters unless otherwise specified by the donor.

Emory’s Lettie Pate Whitehead scholarships are included in the recipients’ total financial aid package, and the award follows scholars through their course of study, as long as they remain in one of the above-designated schools.
