To qualify for the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:

Completed applications must be submitted to the Financial Aid Department prior to the start of the program.
This amount may be prorated if incoming transfer credits were applied. The transfer credits may not exceed 50% of the total credits required for graduation for the undergraduate level programs and, 70% for the diploma level programs. Additionally, a student may not be awarded more than one (1) scholarship during the program of study.
FTC will evaluate and determine whether a student continues to qualify for the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship at the end of each term. A qualified student will receive the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship in the form of a retroactive disbursement of $400.00 per term up to the maximum amount awarded, not to exceed the amount of tuition and fees that were to be financed by debt and charged to the student for the applicable program, after first applying for any other financial assistance. FTC will not issue refunds to a student as a result of receiving the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship. Rather, the Healthcare Heroes Scholarship will be proportionately reduced to avoid a resulting credit balance.
