Scholarship & Endowment Board


​The Physical Therapy Scholarship & Endowment Board was established in 2012, providing robust scholarships in perpetuity for students enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Colorado. Scholarships aim to increase student diversity, attract the most meritorious students and ease the burden of student loan debt. The Board is proud to have grown significantly, awarding on average over $200,000 in scholarships. Members of the Board include University leadership, program staff, alumni and community members. 

Mission Statement - Ensure money is never the obstacle to bringing the best students and leading-class faculty, research and practice to the CU Physical Therapy Program
