Underrepresented Student Scholarships

WesternU values having a diverse student body both to increase the diversity of the future health care workforce, as well as to prepare all our students to provide the best care for their future diverse patients. Scholarships assist the University in attracting and supporting students from groups who are currently or historically underrepresented in the WesternU student body and/or the professional workforce. While federal law prohibits the University from awarding scholarships to students from a particular racial group or gender, we can award scholarships whose aim is to generally increase the diversity of the student body. And what is considered to be underrepresented can vary from decade to decade and program to program along dimensions such as race, gender, disability, and more.

You may contribute to the general university underrepresented student scholarship fund, a specific college/program underrepresented student scholarship fund, or establish a named scholarship in your (or another) name. Click here to inquire about establishing a named scholarship.
