The financial aid opportunities that are offered through the Duke DPT program are listed below. Applications for scholarships and financial aid opportunities are included in admissions packets. Qualified applicants may also be eligible for federal education loan programs. International students do not qualify for federal loans; however, they are eligible for the financial aid opportunities listed below:
An outside scholarship that Duke DPT students have been able to take advantage of is the US Department of Veteran Affairs Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). This scholarship is specifically for students enrolled in graduate health professions programs (PT, nursing, and PA). This is a full scholarship that covers tuition and fees as well as providing a monthly stipend. Eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or be unconditionally accepted for enrollment in, an academic program that prepares the applicant to meet the VA Qualification Standards for employment in occupational field for which the scholarship is awarded. Specific requirements can be found here. During the 2017 application cycle 10 PT scholarships were awarded and 3 of those were awarded to Duke DPT students.
