GIVE | TO A SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORTING THE COLLEGE OF HEALTH PROFESSIONS

The College of Health Professions provides students with a rigorous, patient-centered education, critical and creative thinking skills, and soft skills needed to face the challenges of our changing health profession fields. We work diligently to prepare our students for success in a supportive environment enriched with excellent faculty, resources, and strong connections to the health care community. 

Private gifts fund important educational areas such as scholarships, research, and hands-on learning not covered by tuition dollars or state aid, which are a necessity for many of our students. In addition, we have identified the recruitment and retention of faculty and students who reflect the diversity of our population as essential strategies to address our nation's health care disparities. Because of gifts that support these needs, our students can pursue their passions and ultimately make positive impacts on the health of our communities. 

There are many ways to support Grand Valley State University. You can directly support our students by giving to any of the scholarship funds listed below. On behalf of the university, our college, and our current and future students, we sincerely thank you for your contribution!
