Texas Right to Life is thrilled to announce the expansion of our scholarship for medical students! The Dr. Edward Hannigan Pro-Life Health Professional Student Scholarship will now accept applications from students enrolled at a Texas health science center for all fields of study including, but not limited to, medical students, nursing students, occupational therapy students, physician assistant studies students, dental students, and more!
Recipients of the scholarship receive $1,000 per semester and must establish a Pro-Life group on their health science center campus or join an already existing Pro-Life group on campus and serve in leadership. Additionally, scholarship recipients must assist their group in organizing at least three Pro-Life lectures each semester on any variety of topics related to Pro-Life ideals and how they relate to the medical field. Texas Right to Life assists and mentors these students throughout the school year, sometimes providing lecture speakers, hosting networking events, and providing guidance on best practices for a graduate school Pro-Life group.
To be considered to receive the scholarship in August 2018, please apply by July 1, 2018. Find the full scholarship requirements and guidelines on the Texas Right to Life website.
