Student & Alumni Scholarships

Scholarships for Scholarship

The training required to pursue a health care career can be expensive. In the long-run, it is worth it, but we know a helping hand along the way is often the difference between dreaming about a career and starting one. 


Kozer Boyd Memorial Scholarship

She set high-standards and expectations for her students and her class was affectionately known as “RT Boot Camp.”
