About The Provident Scholarship Fund

The Provident Scholarship Fund devotes nearly $1 million to support current and future healthcare professionals committed to providing health care to underserved communities. Medical and dental students under the Health Professionals program will receive $20,000 scholarships, and Allied Health/Undergraduate and high school senior students were eligible to receive $10,000 scholarships. 

Mirna’s statement 

“I am sincerely honored to have been selected as one of the recipients of the Provident Scholarship. Along with removing the load of financial debt, it gives me that drive of encouragement to keep pushing through my last semester. I am proud to become part of the Loretto hospital team, where I can connect with the Austin community. Thank you, Midwestern for helping me set the roots of my career.” – Mirna T.

Shanissa’s Statement 

“I am extremely grateful to be a recipient of the Provident Scholarship. This scholarship is completely different from any other award that I have received in the past. I believe it truly takes the student into account and seeks to eliminate any financial burden you may have, not just tuition. It truly caters to non-traditional students whose financial challenges exist outside of the institution. Because of this opportunity, I will be able to fully focus on completing my program debt-free. – Shanissa J.
