Appalachian Regional Healthcare Partnership

Earn scholarships and work in Appalachia

Transylvania has partnered with Appalachian Regional Healthcare to give students from Appalachia the opportunity to earn scholarship money to Transy and return home to work for ARH in one of many career fields. Eligible academic programs include pre-health, pre-medical, pre-pharmacy, physical therapy, computer science, accounting, business management and social services. 

Students selected for the scholarship program may receive up to $15,000 over four years — in addition to other merit and need-based aid — and will have access to experiential learning opportunities during their undergraduate studies in the form of summer work, mentorships and internships with ARH.

Eligibility: The program is open to both prospective and current Transylvania students from counties in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia in the ARH service area interested in working in health care, including as a health care practitioner or in an administrative role.
