How to Apply

Both the Albert W. Dent and Foster G. McGaw Graduate Student Scholarships are offered annually. Each scholarship is for $3,500; the number awarded varies from year to year.

Because the Foundation receives more applications for scholarships than it can honor, it has instructed the director of each graduate program to recommend students who, in the upcoming fall term, will be entering their final year of the program.

The Foundation accepts applications for scholarships each year between January 1 and March 31. Students selected to receive scholarships are announced in July.

For application and scholarship information call the Div. of Memberships at (312) 424-9400 or www.ache.org
