Scholarships

                University Scholarship Opportunities

Many scholarships are offered by the college and program offices that serve students on the UT Health Science Campus:  College of Medicine & Life Sciences, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy and Physician Assistant Studies.  You may contact those offices directly for more information.

A searchable Scholarship Guide can be found here along with contact information and some applications:  http://www.utoledo.edu/financialaid/scholarships/search

Various University Committees participate in the scholarship recipient selection process.  Most scholarships applications are available January through March for the subsequent academic award year.

External Scholarship Opportunities

We also encourage students to seek reputable scholarship opportunities external to the University of Toledo to assist with educational costs and potentially reduce loan indebtedness.  Scholarship applications should be free, no fee required.  Here are some sites begin your search:
