It all starts with scholarships
When you support physical therapy scholarships in Phoenix, you help us form a new generation of students ready to serve a region direly in need of health care professionals.
Creighton’s 183,000-square-foot, $100 million campus — opened in 2021 at Park Central in midtown Phoenix — serves as a four-year health sciences school for hundreds of students in multiple health care professions.
As Creighton prepares students for a workforce that demands innovative care and service amid a rapidly changing world, scholarships are the key to everything.

Meeting a need with the best in the nation
Creighton’s new campus can't come to Phoenix soon enough, with Arizona requiring more health care professionals to meet the state’s booming population and the growing needs of aging and diverse demographics.
In Phoenix (and elsewhere), our PT students and alumni strive to live a life of service, compassion and justice, translating the values of a Jesuit education into everyday practice.
Creighton PT graduates are a tremendous asset to their patients and communities. Through scholarships, we can form and send even more of them into the profession.
Your support of scholarships will continue to bring the best and brightest students to Phoenix and infuse the area with some of the most practice-ready physical therapists in the nation.
The gift of scholarships
In the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, we have a profound sense of privilege to care for others. With that privilege comes the responsibility to offer a transformative education to all deserving students, regardless of their finances.
Scholarship support weighs significantly in students' decision to come to Creighton. 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.
When you make a gift to scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

Making an impact
“Through the many opportunities and experiences I’ve had at Creighton, I've seen the impact I can have on someone's life — how I can help them tap into their perseverance and strength of spirit. “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.”
