True Medical Single Parents in Healthcare Scholarship

Celebrating the fascinating academic pursuits and compelling stories of single parents and those raised by single parents as future healthcare professionals

At True Medical, we see single parenting as an accomplishment in its own right. It takes tremendous strength and extraordinary willpower to balance academics, career, and the demands of daily life as a single parent. Like all parents, single parents want nothing more than to give their children a promising future, except they often have to work twice as hard to make it happen.

Yet it is even more awe-inspiring when single parents or their children are pursuing their academic ambitions full of vim and vigor, even in the face of unique and complex hardships and various financial and academic challenges. Sometimes, what seems like a distant prospect can be turned into a real opportunity and open the door for a promising future. That is where True Medical comes in. This year, True Medical has decided to offer a $2500 scholarship to single parents or children of single parents who are future healthcare professionals.

Our mission

Many are denied the opportunity to access quality education. It is a privilege often denied to those who deserve it most. Additionally, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be able to pursue higher education in the first place, let alone when there are other responsibilities to fulfill and not enough time to do it all. High tuition fees and costs of living are making it even more difficult for deserving students to lead a decent life and be able to focus on their education and academic achievements. But all this especially holds true when single parenting is part of the equation.

True Medical is here to celebrate single parenting and assist those single parents or the children of single parents pursuing higher education and a career in any health sciences/healthcare-related field. By providing financial assistance, we want to promote academic excellence and reduce financial barriers. We hope to support the education and future careers of eligible students, bolster their confidence in their academic abilities, and strengthen their resolve to carry their plans through.

Award details

This academic year, we will be offering an award in the amount of $2500 to eligible students currently pursuing a degree in any health sciences/healthcare-related academic field. Below are the eligibility criteria which apply to this scholarship program focusing on single parents and children of single parents. We hope this will be the beginning of a beautiful tradition to be readily embraced by eligible applicants and that may also encourage more single parents with academic ambitions to follow the same example. Here at True Medical, we know beginnings are challenging so we want to give those who need a helping hand an extra push. Let’s learn and grow together!
