Donate to the CU Physical Therapy Program

Scholarships change lives. They make a huge impact on students’ ability to choose the field of their choice and on their day-to-day experiences in school.

The financial aspect of a scholarship is essential to potential students and their futures. And just as important, students report that receiving a scholarship means so much in terms of feeling that someone is investing and believing in them.

The University of Colorado Physical Therapy Program is a multi-faceted academic program committed to delivering the highest quality education to our Doctor of Physical Therapy students, providing service to society, enhancing scholarly discovery, conducting research and contributing to the enhancement of the profession.

You can make a difference! We are committed to building and supporting a viable scholarship fund to assist deserving students with tuition costs. We encourage you to donate to one of our Scholarship Funds. Every gift counts, regardless of the amount.

The Physical Therapy Program scholarship initiative will increase diversity, recognize and honor excellence and increase placement in rural areas. With various funds to help make a difference, your donation can help strengthen the future of Physical Therapy education.
