Forming future leaders

This is the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions’ signature endowed scholarship fund, established by alumni in 2005 in honor of the school’s 100-year anniversary. 

This scholarship recognizes and unites generations of pharmacy, physical therapy and occupational therapy health care professionals. Open to all SPAHP students, the scholarship is awarded to at least one student from each of these professions every year. 

The scholarship is pivotal to increasing Creighton SPAHP student aid and offsetting tuition costs. It also represents a powerful message for current students — that our alumni believe in them. 

Anyone can contribute to the Centennial Scholarship. When you make a gift to the fund, you're collectively supporting our students with merit- and need-based scholarships, well into the future. 

Scholarships are our area of greatest need in SPAHP, and they're one of the most effective ways to attract outstanding students to become the next generation of leaders in health care.

It all starts with scholarships. 

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

Scholarships help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, they give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth. 

More financial aid will mean that more students can access our top-ranking education to become the passionate and skilled professionals the world needs now. 

With your support, we can continue to bring the best and brightest students to the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, offering them a truly transformative education committed to treating the whole person — mind, body and soul.

EVERYTHING I WANT IN A PROFESSION

“Physical therapy is a calling in which I get to build relationships with people and give them the long-term, high-quality care they need. It’s everything I could want in a profession. “I was able to come to Creighton because of scholarships supported by donors like you. Your generosity has afforded me these many opportunities and helped me become the best physical therapist I can be.”
