2014 Tapestry Parkview Health Sciences Scholarship

Applications due by 5 p.m. Friday, January 17, 2014

The Tapestry Parkview Health Sciences Scholarship was established in 2002 to provide merit based scholarships to Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) students in the College of Health and Human Services.  The recipients shall have high academic standards; commitment to high quality professional service; demonstrated responsibility for their own actions and education; and strong involvement in community and professional activities. 

Up to $40,000 in awards are available for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Scholarship monies may be used for tuition and fees and will be deposited directly into the recipients bursar accounts.   Therefore, this program is only open to students who will be continuing in their program through spring 2015, not students graduating spring, summer, or fall 2014.

Selection of recipients shall be based on recommendation of a committee of faculty members appointed by the Dean of the College of Health and Human Services with the approval of the Tapestry Scholarship Committee.  Scholarship administration will be completed by Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Financial Aid Services.

Selection will only be made if qualified candidates can be identified.  Scholarships will be awarded based on merit rather than financial need.

Tapestry: A Day for You will be held Friday, April 25, 2014 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.  The scholarship winners are expected to complete a video interview which will be presented at the event.  The scholarship winners are expected to attend and will be recognized on stage during the lunch program.  A certificate will be given.  The recipients’ names also will be displayed on a permanent plaque in the College of Health and Human Services.  Registration for the scholarship recipient to attend the event will be complimentary.
