Health Care Scholarships

The scholarships listed under the heading of Health Care cover several distinct health-related disciplines. Many of the funding opportunities covered here pertain to students pursuing a degree in the field of allied health. Continue reading to find out more about this major and about the world of health care scholarships.

As an academic discipline allied health prepares individuals for careers in medicine, providing patient care, rehabilitation and diagnostic treatments. Allied health degree programs are available at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Of course, for some positions responsible for providing direct patient care, you'll need more than a bachelor's degree.

The exact nature of the courses you'll take in this type of program will depend in part on the concentration of your studies. Examples of these concentrations include topics such as health sciences, public health promotion or environmental health and policy. However, there are some commonalities between these programs and you will most likely face core courses such as medical terminology, ergonomics, biostatistics, genetic research, nutrition and pathobiology. 

It is difficult to attempt to provide a clear picture with regards the employment outlook of allied health professionals. This is because the field is so wide and varied and includes such disparate professions as art therapist, emergency medical technician, nutritionist and phlebotomist. 

Some allied health careers, such as surgical technologist, are expected to experience a 20% increase in job opportunities over the coming decade. Other careers, such as medical and clinical lab technicians are expected to see only as 11% increase over the same time period. Bi-lingual job candidates and those willing to relocate will face the most robust career choices.

Allied health degree programs come in all the available shapes and sizes. You can find these programs at private, non-profit universities and also public, for-profit institutions. Programs are available that are offered exclusively in a distance-learning environment. Other programs are offered in the traditional classroom lecture format. And then there are hybrid programs that utilize a blend of the old and the new. You'll want to put some time into researching your desired program to ensure you get a good fit.
