Scholarships for Lab Students

Application Deadline:
Application deadline extended to December 1, 2014. Applications are available on the right.   

Scholarships can be a bright light in building an accomplished body of laboratory professionals. Rather than lose bright students, ASCP and Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics would like to recognize students for outstanding academic performance. These scholarships offer sizable amounts of aid based mainly on academic promise.

Recent College Board data from more than 600 nonprofit colleges and universities show that some are giving fewer students more money or stretching their dollars by handing smaller amounts to more students. But others are expanding the number of recipients as well as the amount of their awards.

ASCP and Siemens Diagnostic Healthcare take great pleasure in providing these scholarships. They recognize that many students are often not able to afford to go to school and feel “gratified” that they are able to give a helping hand. Both ASCP and Siemens hope the students will make good use of the opportunity, urging them to be “men and women this great profession.”

Additional information about scholarship requirements and application deadlines can be found on the Frequently Asked Questions page.

You must be an ASCP member to apply for a scholarship. Membership is free for students, so Join Now!

"Receiving the Siemens-ASCP Scholarship means so much to me! Not only am I appreciative of the money, but am honored to have been chosen! I appreciate both Siemens and ASCP for recognizing the financial needs students have while completing their education. Medical Laboratory Science is my passion, and I will continue to teach others, protect patients, and continue to learn in an ever changing field!"

This scholarship will not only help me pay for my summer cytology courses, but I will also be able to take out fewer loans in the future. It is so great that, as a student, I can be rewarded for all the effort and time spent working toward my goals of graduation and becoming a great Medical Laboratory Scientist. I plan to attend graduate school next year and feel very fortunate to have received this award.”
