RMU Merit Scholarship

Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMU) offers $500 merit scholarships, which are available to enrolled students who demonstrate excellent academic performance and personal behavior, that is of merit, toward healthcare and the community.

Who can apply for a merit scholarship?
Merit scholarships are available to any enrolled and registered student of RMU that demonstrates notable academic performance and personal behavior toward healthcare and the community.

How can I apply for a merit scholarship?
Scholarship applications are available online and can be accessed by clicking here or the apply button above. As part of the application, you must submit a personal statement explaining your activities or involvement in a merit-worthy event or events.

Are there admission or GPA requirements for merit scholarships?
Students must be admitted to RMU and be registered for a full-time class schedule to apply (including online or independent study courses). Those who are selected to receive a merit scholarship will be required to maintain satisfactory academic progress. While there is not a specific GPA requirement, applicants must provide transcripts from their previous school (if they have never attended RMUoHP).

What is the application deadline for merit scholarships?
There are three application cycles throughout the year. Applications are accepted on the first (1st) of July (fall semester), November (winter semester), and March (summer semester), respectively. The deadline for each of these application periods is on the fifteenth (15th) of the months stated above (the scholarship application cycle schedule may also be found on the previous page).

How will I know if I was selected for a merit scholarship?
Scholarship awardees will be notified within sixty (60) days of the receipt of their completed application. The disbursement of scholarship funds will occur after the add/drop deadline date of each semester.

If I have previously received a merit scholarship, will I automatically receive one next year or do I need to reapply?
No, you will need to reapply each year that you are eligible. Scholarships are not automatically renewed from year to year. A student may apply during all three application periods (July, November, and March); however, students may receive only one merit scholarship per calendar year. If a student is awarded a merit scholarship during a given year, that student must wait until the next calendar year to apply (when they will once again be eligible).

If you are a Financial Aid recipient, receiving any scholarship will affect your Cost of Attendance (COA), and it is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office if you are selected for an award. Should you be awarded a scholarship from any source (internal or external), take time to send the institution a “Thank You” letter.
