Application requirements for the Allied Healthcare Scholarship are:

  • Recommendation letter
  • Application form
  • Graduation Date Verification Form
Additional Information: Although this scholarship is funded by Kaiser Permanente, awardees of this program are not obligated to work for Kaiser Permanente. Recipients of this award must complete, immediately following graduation, a one-year service obligation to practice in a medically underserved area of California providing full-time (32 hours per week) direct patient care in their fields of study. Students can also fulfill their scholarship obligation by, immediately following graduation, completing 100 volunteer work hours for every $4,000. Volunteer work must be direct patient care in a medically underserved area. If the recipient does not successfully fulfill this contractual obligation, he/she will be required to repay all scholarships or loan repayments received, plus 10 percent interest and $250 administrative fees. Selection for the awards is based on the following criteria: work experience, financial need, career goals, community service, community background, and academic performance. Priority is given to applicants whose community background and commitment indicates the likelihood of long-term employment in a medically underserved area even after the service obligation has ended. Applicants who owe a service obligation to practice direct patient care to another entity entered into before filing an application with the foundation are ineligible to receive a scholarship. Nursing students are also ineligible to apply for this program.

Award Amount: Up to $8,000 annually, non-renewable. Funding is intended to pay tuition, required fees, books, supplies, and educational equipment costs related to the student's registered nurse or pre-nursing education.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $8,000.
