Scholarships

Each academic year the department offers scholarships to students currently enrolled in the DPT program. The department distributes applications once a year, at the beginning of fall semester. For college-wide scholarship opportunities, please visit the College of Health Scholarships page.

We also encourage students to look into University-wide scholarships through the University of Utah Scholarship Database to find additional scholarship opportunities.

Students can also find scholarship opportunities through the American Physical Therapy Association.
