Departmental Awards

All OD students in good standing receive monetary awards each semester of the program.

You do not need to apply for these awards. They are automatically applied to all students in good standing.


Current OD students also have many additional scholarship opportunities throughout their four years in the program. Awards can range between $1,000-$5,000 dollars and come from various organizations across the country. The school also has an established Professional Student Support Fund, which are endowments provided by generous faculty and alumni of the school. Applications for these various opportunities are announced and managed by the Admissions and Student Affairs Office.
