Scholarships may be available for those who demonstrate financial need. The Mayo Clinic Office of Student Financial Aid can provide more details about financial aid for the Physical Therapy Doctoral Program.
Mayo School of Health Sciences Need-Based Grants are awarded to students on an annual basis. Selection criteria for these awards are based on a formula that evaluates student-documented financial need and are determined by the Mayo School of Health Sciences Scholarship Committee. The awards are made possible by generous benefactor contributions and therefore the award amounts vary annually.
In the 2015-2016 academic year, enrolled physical therapy students were awarded need-based grants exceeding $164,000. The average award was $2,000. Additional grants are awarded on a competitive basis to students enrolled in the third year of the program by the Mayo Clinic Physical Therapy Alumni Association.
Costs are subject to change by Mayo School of Health Sciences and its affiliates.
