State-by-State Guide to Healthcare Administration Undergrad and Master’s Degree Scholarships

Healthcare Administration Scholarships

Although the money can definitely be good once you’ve worked your way up to a position in healthcare administration, most people don’t go into the field strictly for a paycheck. No matter what your motivation, anyone would agree that the last thing you want to do is pile up a mountain of student debt on your way to seeing better paydays.

College isn’t cheap these days, especially not if you’re going into a solid, well-respected program.

Scholarships are an excellent way to fill in your funding gaps. While loans are common and more easily obtained, you can end up paying them back for decades. A scholarship, on the other hand will put thousands of dollars toward your tuition payments and other necessities with little or no further obligation… and in the end you won’t be doing any more paperwork than you would if taking out another loan.

It takes some work to track down the right scholarships to fit your circumstances and program, but it’s well worth the time. Even if you only pin down one scholarship, it can take a real chunk out of the cost of tuition and books for a semester or two… if you land more, or some of the larger ones, you could conceivably get through school with almost no debt whatsoever.

What Qualifies You For a Scholarship in Healthcare Administration?

Although most scholarships have few or no obligations after they are awarded, that’s the easy part. The hard part comes up front, as you are applying alongside thousands of other potentially deserving candidates. The bulk of applicants for any given scholarship will be disqualified on a basic failure to conform with the scholarship award criteria.

Criteria are set by the awarding institutions or by benefactors who set up the bequests initially. In some cases, the criteria are very straightforward: you must meet basic qualifications for:

  • Type of degree being sought
  • Your enrollment status and progression
  • Grade Point Average
  • SAT scores

Some or all of these are established for almost every scholarship. Other boilerplate requirements usually exist to prevent nepotism or other favoritism.

Because academics are a primary theme that many scholarships are trying to promote, most awards committees will also look favorably on other achievements, even if they are not required. These can include:

  • Volunteer experience in the field
  • Statements of intent or essays
  • Capstone projects
  • Internship work
  • Other extracurricular efforts in the field
  • Letters of recommendation from professors, supervisors, or teachers

Beyond those basics, though, scholarships can become extremely specialized in focus.

Group Membership

One of the most common criteria for scholarship awards is contingent on belong to a particular group. This can be a voluntary membership, such as is required for the Richard P. Covert Scholarship for Management Systems from HIMSS, a $5,000 scholarship that is only open to HIMSS members.

Gender and Ethnicity

Scholarships may also be open to individuals on the basis of gender, or ethnicity. These scholarships are usually designed to encourage historically underrepresented students to go into the field.

But you don’t necessarily have to be in a traditionally underrepresented minority to take advantage of some of these, either. The Ellis Bonner Award is a rather fuzzy example of this sort of award—it offers up to $2,500 to a “non-traditional” graduate student in Healthcare administration.

Economic Status

Most scholarship award committees have a serious interest in making sure they are giving opportunities to students who would otherwise be overlooked or be unable to pursue a healthcare management degree. In many cases, you will have to demonstrate a financial need for the award. This is usually done by providing income statements and bank records from you or your parents (depending on the scholarship and often your age and grade level).

Locality

Other scholarships are offered only for students attending certain programs. This is common among colleges that offer scholarships, such as the Leslie Blide Memorial Scholarship for University of Wisconsin students.

On the other hand, there’s also the Capella University Health Administration Scholarship, which has a twist—it offers between $1,200 and $5,000 only to Capella students, but since it’s an online school, you can be anywhere in the country and still be eligible.

There are also strange combinations of eligibility criteria that very few people can qualify for. For example, the Larry A. Mullins DHA Scholarship from Samaritan Health Services offers $1,000 awards to students who:

  • Are currently undergraduates in the healthcare field.
  • Currently work in healthcare.
  • Are members or veterans of the U.S. Military.
  • Are willing to work in Arizona or Oregon after graduation.
  • Are attending programs at one of seven different schools, scattered between Oregon and South Carolina.

If you can meet all those criteria, you’re probably the only applicant!

Best Places to Look for Scholarships in Healthcare Administration

Although the big money scholarships can be appealing, it’s worth considering amassing a collection of smaller awards instead of putting all your efforts into one big one. You have better odds of being accepted if you put out more applications, and you may find there is less competition for scholarships with a smaller dollar amount attached to them.

It’s also worth looking at how many scholarships a particular endowment awards, not just the amount itself. Those handing out more awards improve your odds of receiving something. The Congressional Black Caucus General Mills Health Scholarship, which puts out between 40 and 46 $2,500 scholarships each year, fits into this category. In 2017, they made 44 awards totaling more than $100,000.

Industry Groups

Healthcare management industry groups are a significant source of scholarship funds. By investing in education for future healthcare administrators, they are bankrolling the health of the industry. You can find these groups operating at both the national and regional levels. The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), a national non-profit representing professionals who manage medical practice groups, offers two different scholarship funds at the national level, but regional sections such as MGMA Midwest also have their own awards.

There are also certification bodies and other industry support groups that offers some scholarship funds. The American College of Medical Practice Executives, the standard setting and certification body of the MGMA, offers the Richard L. Davis National Scholarship, worth $1,500, to any graduate or undergraduate student studying healthcare or medical practice management anywhere in the nation.

Hospitals and Health Services

One often lucrative source of scholarship and grant money are the future employers of healthcare administrators: hospitals and health programs. Some of these can be enormously generous, such as the National Institutes of Health’s Undergraduate Scholarship Program. It offers up to $20,000 per academic year in tuition, educational expenses, and reasonable living expenses, not to mention paid research training at NIH during the summers. But it comes with a hook—you have to be willing to commit to accepting employment at NIH for at least as many years as you accepted their funding.

The Indian Health Service has a variety of scholarships that are both government funded and prioritized for recipients with Indian heritage. This makes them a pretty solid bet to apply for if you are Indian, but doesn’t rule them out even if you are not.

Colleges and Non-Health Related Endowments

Universities themselves shouldn’t be overlooked as a source of scholarship funds. Almost all colleges have a wide variety of scholarships that are not specific to any particular program. They are simply designed to assist as many qualified students as possible in entering and completing a university degree. The financial aid office at your college will have the most information on these, as well as providing invaluable assistance in identifying and applying for other scholarships.

Of course, there are plenty of healthcare administration scholarships that are school-specific as well, like the Howard W. and Shannon H.S. Houser Endowment at the University of Alabama.

And because healthcare administration is, in addition to being its own specialty, a subset of general business and management education, don’t overlook business-oriented scholarships that might also be applied to healthcare administration degrees. Golden Key, for example, an international honor society, offers leadership scholarship awards that can cover almost any business-oriented degree discipline. With almost $13 million in awards handed out since 1977, it, and sources like it, shouldn’t be passed up.
