Scholarship Recipients

Rutgers School of Health Professions is committed to ensuring that all students can pursue their ambitions and dreams. Although SHP offers competitive tuition prices and a wide range of financial assistance, some students still need to cover gaps when paying for their education.  Scholarship support lets students focus on what will move them toward future success.
