History Of The Program

Since 2001, the Gallagher Student Health Careers Scholarship Program has provided more than 60 outstanding students with the financial assistance they need to pursue their health-related career.


Open to higher education students entering their junior and senior year of Undergraduate study, the scholarship program continues to grow in both the number of scholarships offered each year and the amount of each scholarship.

Each scholarship recipient is selected by the Scholarship Program Board of Directors, and each recipient both demonstrates and exceeds the program standards, which include: a strong motivation to pursue a healthcare career, academic excellence, a dedication to community service, and a need for financial support of their education.

Scholarship winners, beyond receiving their monetary award, are invited to attend a Winner's Reception and Dinner in Boston, where they are honored and given the opportunity to meet the Gallagher Student Staff, the Scholarship Board Members, and other Gallagher Student Friends and Associates.
