Health Careers Scholarship Program


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 5
Award Deadline: April 1, 2021

Since May of 1976, the IOKDS Health Careers Scholarship Department has provided scholarships to students in health career fields. Students must be citizens of the United States or Canada and be studying at an accredited institution in the United States or Canada. We believe that contributing to the education of compassionate health care workers assists IOKDS in "caring for all God's children through service In His Name."

Who is eligible?

Medical and dental students (in human medicine) who have completed their first year of an accredited medical/dental school are eligible to apply. Students in pre-med courses are not eligible.

Students studying in a college or university accredited in the fields of pharmacy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, and medical technologies who have completed a minimum of two years of study are eligible to apply. Priority is given to students who are working on their Master's or Doctorate Degrees when those degrees are required for certification.

Students studying to become registered nurses with an Associate's Degree must have completed at least their first year of study at an accredited institution. Those pursuing a Bachelor's or Master's Degree in Nursing must have completed two years of study.

Am I eligible for a scholarship for more than one academic year?

Scholarship recipients are eligible to receive scholarships for a maximum of three academic years. Students must re-apply each year and remain in good academic standing to be considered.
