The NYU OT Awards Committee is currently accepting applications from our Second Year Professional Program students for the 2014 Frieda J. Behlen Scholarship, an endowed fund created principally by gifts from NYU OT alumni to honor the memory of Frieda J. Behlen, founder and longtime chair of NYU’s Department of Occupational Therapy. Income generated by the endowment is awarded annually to students who demonstrate superior academic achievement as well as financial need. This year the NYU OT Awards Committee is pleased to be able to offer three $3,500 summer tuition scholarships. These awards take the form of summer tuition credits and will be directly applied towards tuition for summer coursework.

The application is currently available on the NYU OT Department website: http://steinhardt.nyu.edu/ot/secure/ot_awards_scholarships. Please note: this opportunity is currently open to Second Year Professional Program Students only.
Applications must be submitted to the OT Department no later than 5pm Friday, February 14th.
