"Osmosis nicely complements other learning tools and teaching strategies. I have found that it enhances many students’ understanding of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology."

Support Your Students with The Osmosis Health Education Impact Scholarship

We’re providing six scholarships to select students pursuing a degree in medicine, nursing, or other health science-related degrees. Through these awards, we hope to lessen the financial burden that students often face when they embark on a career in the health professions.

If you know of any students who would be a good fit for our Health Education Impact Scholarship, please share the application with your students directly, via your program's bulletin of approved scholarships, or connect us with your financial aid office so we may work with them to ensure as many of your students as possible know about this opportunity.
