EMPOWER Scholarship Award

Designed to increase diversity in the medical rehabilitation field by awarding a scholarship to two students of color each year, to be used at the college or university of their choice. The EMPOWER Scholarship Award is administered by Courage Center, with funds made possible through the David M. Hersey Endowment Fund.

To be considered for the EMPOWER award, applicants must be an ethnically diverse student accepted at or enrolled in a higher learning institution; demonstrate a career interest in the medical/ rehabilitation field by completing at least 200 hours of career-related volunteer service; and have a minimum GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

EMPOWER applicants must identify how they will use their educational training and demonstrate their interest in this field. Selection is based on the applicants’ intentions, achievements and need, rather than solely on graduation ranking.
