EMPOWER Scholarships

  • The EMPOWER Scholarship, administered by Courage Kenny Foundation, encourages and supports ethnically diverse students who are pursuing a career in a medical or rehabilitation field.

    The scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from the David M. Hersey Endowment Fund of the Courage Kenny Foundation.

    Applicants must identify how they will use their education and training and demonstrate their interest in rehabilitation. Selection is based on the applicant’s stated intentions, past achievements, need, and graduation ranking.

    To be eligible for a scholarship, please read the requirements to ensure you submit a complete application package. The application deadline is April 30. Scholarships are awarded in June with checks made out to the educational institution you plan to attend.
