"My favorite academic experiences in HRS have been my clinical experiences. I have gone on to complete my DPT and the friendships I have made along the way. These experiences and the people I have met have changed my life forever.

This scholarship has allowed me to be fully dedicated to my DPT/PhD and has allowed me to include additional, once-in-a-lifetime experiences into my education including the service learning trip to Merida, Mexico and completing my practicum in a research lab in Lille, France. I am so grateful for this scholarship and the opportunities it has given me! Thank you!!"

"I sustained many injuries while growing up as an ice hockey player. Each injury brought with it a subsequent course of Physical Therapy. I soon recognized that when I was connected with a truly passionate Physical Therapist I not only recovered more quickly, but I felt better emotionally and even performed better. These dedicated Physical Therapists made an enormous difference in my life. It was their influence that drove me to pursue Physical Therapy so I may help others in the same manner."

"I was interested in pursuing a dual degree (DPT/PhD), and OSU was one of the few schools that offers this. I met my advisor, Dr. Jill Heathcock, and decided it was a great fit! For me, this scholarship means that I have the time I need to pursue both of my degrees simultaneously, and spend time working toward my goal of doing an inter-departmental research project on hippotherapy as part of my dissertation."
