To qualify for the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:
A) Be Enrolled in one of our Allied Health Programs with a start date of May 4, 2020
B) Must remain continuously enrolled in that Diploma, Associate, or Bachelor's degree program until completion
C) Maintain a satisfactory academic progress.
D) Be current on all financial obligations to FTC
FTC will evaluate and determine whether a student continues to qualify for the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship at the end of each term. A qualified student will receive the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship in the form of a retroactive disbursement of $600.00 per term up to the maximum amount awarded, not to exceed the amount of tuition and fees that was to be financed by debt and charged to the student for the applicable program, after first applying any other financial assistance. FTC will not issue refunds to a student as a result of receiving the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship. Rather, the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship will be proportionately reduced to avoid a resulting credit balance.
Completed applications must be submitted to the Financial Aid Department prior to the start of the program. Awards will be made on a first come, first served basis and will be based on applying and meeting all qualifying criteria. For award year 2019-20 the institution has allocated a total budget of $75,000.00.
