The following scholarships are offered through USMH or external opportunities. You must apply to each scholarship separately. Our local Washington County community and alumni ambassadors are thoughtful donors who want to provide for the next generation of USMH graduates.
Remember: If you seek traditional financial aid, you must apply through the institution to which you are accepted. If you want to apply for a scholarship, these are separate, individual applications from the items below. To see how to apply for financial aid through your university, visit the financial aid page.
