To be eligible for an OHC Scholarship, applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:
Acceptance and enrollment into one of the following OHC courses: Foundations, Therapeutics, or Clinical Internship*
Financial need, defined as household income up to 200% of Federal Poverty Level. Income eligibility for 2018 appears below. Applicants must submit documentation.

Completion of the OHC Scholarship Application, including application checklist, application form, documentation of financial need, personal statement, and letters of recommendation. Please see the OHC Scholarship application Form for detailed instructions.‡
*At this time, we are not awarding scholarships for the Apprenticeship program. Scholarship applicants, like all other students, pay a deposit upon enrollment. However, the deposit will be refunded upon request to scholarship applicants who do not receive awards, or if any award they receive is insufficient for them to attend OHC.
†Scholarship recipients are expected to perform at least 4 hours per month of volunteer community service. Such service can take place in the OHC community clinic or garden, the Charlotte Maxwell clinics, or other venues approved by the OHC Directors.
‡Returning awardees who wish to apply for continuing scholarships must successfully complete their previous year in the program and provide documentation of at least 4 hours per month of volunteer community/public service during that time.
Awards will be paid directly to the OHC for successful applicants who are enrolled and in good standing. All OHC students must remain in good standing. Students who are not in good standing are subject to expulsion from the school. Scholarships paid for students who leave or are expelled during the tuition refund period (30 days) will be returned to the scholarship fund.
