Full Tuition Scholarship to Chapman PA Program


Overcoming Barriers to Impact the World in Positive Ways


The new Simon Scholar Physician Assistant Program at Chapman University creates pathways for students facing adversity by offering full-tuition scholarships.

This scholarship provides eligible students who wish to earn their Masters in Medical Science degree (MMS) at the Chapman University Physician Assistant program with the opportunity to graduate in two years with little or no debt and join the profession ranked number one in best healthcare jobs in 2021 by U.S. News & World Report.

Student debt can have a significant effect on career choices, as well as clinical practice types and location. This impact is especially significant for underserved students facing financial adversity. Our goal is to minimize the impact on student debt for students awarded the Simon Scholar PA Program scholarship.

Qualified applicants to Simon Scholar PA Program must also meet Chapman University PA Program admissions requirements.
