Since 1996, the RRPAA has been awarding scholarships to PA students in the Greater Rochester Region.
The current criteria for scholarship eligibility is as follows:
- The applicant must be a PA student in good standing at RIT.
- Expected to be in the final 3 years of the program.
- Student membership in the RRPAA is also required.
A request for applicants is issued to the Program Directors at RIT in the end of the summer/early fall. The scholarships are awarded by check at the RRPAA Annual General Membership Meeting, usually in October or November.
The winner is chosen by the Board of Directors based on an essay. The topic is determined by the board yearly.
