Two Horizon Scholars will receive four-year, full-tuition academic scholarships to join the Health Professions Program (HPP).
We are excited to announce a new full-tuition scholarship opportunity supported by Horizon Therapeutics plc. This $500,000 investment has been made to support economically disadvantaged and underrepresented students to further their Liberal Arts and Health Professions education.
““Thanks to Horizon’s generosity, two fortunate students will be able to further their education in the College’s Health Professions Program, as well as take advantage of opportunities provided by our partnership with Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science,” said Stephen Schutt, president, Lake Forest College.”
What is the Horizon Scholarship?
Two Horizon Scholars will receive four-year, full-tuition academic scholarships to join the Health Professions Program (HPP). In addition, Horizon will assign a mentor to each scholar and provide professional development and networking opportunities.
Who is eligible?
Selection will be limited to economically disadvantaged first-year students entering the College in Fall 2021 with an interest in pursuing a career in the healthcare field. Preference will be given to underrepresented students from Lake County or greater Chicago.
How do I apply?
