Who can apply for an Opportunity scholarship through the Financial Aid Office of Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions?
Opportunity scholarships are available for any enrolled and registered student of RMUoHP that are demonstrating Academic progress and can communicate what opportunity that your education will improve yourself, your family, and the community.
How can I apply for an Opportunity scholarship?
Scholarship applications are available online and can be accessed by clicking here or on the apply button above. As part of the application, you need to also submit a personal statement explaining, what opportunity that your newly earned education will offer you and the people you will be helping to treat and heal.
Are there admission or grade requirements for Opportunity scholarships?
Students must be admitted to RMUoHP and registered for a full-time class schedule in order to apply (including online or Independent Study courses). Those who are selected for a scholarship will be required to maintain acceptable academic standards. New students must provide transcripts and/or GPAs from their previous school if they have never attended RMUoHP.
What is the application deadline for Opportunity scholarships?
There will be three periods of time throughout the year that this scholarship will be accepted. Applications will be accepted on November, March, and July 1st of each year. The deadlines for each of these application periods will be the 15th of the months stated on the schedule.
How will I know if I was selected for an Opportunity scholarship?
Scholarship awardees will be notified within 60 days of the receipt of their completed application. The disbursement of scholarship funds will occur after the add/drop deadline date.
If I have previously received an Opportunity scholarship, will I automatically receive one next year or do I need to reapply?
No, you will need to reapply each year that you’re eligible. Eligible students can receive one Opportunity scholarship per year. A student, however, can apply during all three of the application periods (March, July, and November) in an attempt to be awarded the scholarship. If a student is awarded a scholarship during a given year then that student must wait and apply until the next year, when they will be eligible again. Scholarships are not automatically renewed from year to year.
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.
