The AMBUCS Scholars program represents the largest single private source of educational grants for therapists in the United States. AMBUCS has provided over $7 Million to educate students in accredited programs for physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, and hearing audiology. The reason for providing the scholarships to therapists is that the recipients will graduate and go on to make a positive influence in the lives of thousands of people.
Scholarships are offered to U.S. citizens in their junior/senior year in a bachelor's degree program, or a graduate program leading to a master's or doctoral degree. Awards range from $500 to $1,500 annually with one two-year award of $6,000. Over $180,000 was awarded last year with Texas Tech students receiving over $18,000. Our club is proud of the two recently established Lubbock Caprock AMBUCS endowed scholarships that will be given to a Texas Tech therapist. Our endowed scholarships are given to a student that exhibits a willingness and desire to improve the lives of others through their volunteer efforts.
National Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, commitment to the local community, academic accomplishment, character for compassion and integrity, and career objectives. Applications are accepted each year from mid-January through April 15. Please visit www.ambucs.org to find the application and get more information.
