Student Aid


David S. Lindberg Scholarship

The late Dr. David S. Lindberg served as Assistant/Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 1974 to 1986. In his honor Mrs. Lindberg, family and friends have established a scholarship fund to assist outstanding full-time senior-level undergraduate students in the School of Allied Health Professions. The scholarship is awarded annually based on the highest grade-point average and economic need, and will rotate through the two academic undergraduate programs on a yearly basis.

Betty Lynne Theriot Scholarship

The scholarship honors the memory of the late Betty Lynne Theriot (1954-1997) who was a creative educator and former faculty member of the Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences.  Each year one or more Betty Lynne Theriot Scholarships may be awarded by the Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences (CLS) to students in the Medical Technology Program.  The scholarship(s) is/are funded by sales of the book, Clinical Laboratory Science Review - a bottom line approach, originally authored by Ms. Theriot and currently authored and published by the faculty of the department.  The award is based on grade point average, economic need, evaluation of laboratory skills, and potential for contribution to the profession of laboratory medicine.


Faculty and Alumni Scholarship

Faculty and alumni of the School established this scholarship to recognize outstanding full-time undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Allied Health Professions. The scholarship is awarded annually to one student in each department. The award is based on grade point average and economic need.

Other Support

Some applicants who have served on active duty in the military services may be eligible to receive Veterans Administration assistance to help defray the costs of their educational programs in the School of Allied Health Professions. The educational programs also meet the requirements of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation of the State Department of Education for those students meeting the qualifications.

A complete summary of all provisions governing financial aid available to students of the Health Sciences Center may be found elsewhere in this publication under the heading: TYPES OF STUDENT FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE.


Due to the exacting requirements of the various curricula in the School of Allied Health Professions, it is unwise for students to expect to meet their expenses by outside work. The School does not specifically forbid such additional duties but does discourage them. The departments, furthermore, reserve the right to indicate that such work be discontinued, if in their opinion; it interferes with the satisfactory completion of prescribed academic activities.

Fee Exemptions

Regular graduate assistants are exempt from the University fee and non-resident tuition. Required fees will not be assessed personally from the federally supported trainees or from most fellowship holders, but will be charged against cost-of-education funds received from support of such programs. If in doubt about status as to fee exemptions, please inquire at the Office of Student Affairs.
