It is with great pleasure that the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences Scholarship Committee announces its 2016-2017 scholarship recipients. This year $90,000 in scholarship funds will be disbursed to students.

A. T. Still Osteopathic Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2008 by the Osteopathic Foundation of Central Washington.  It recognizes second, third and fourth-year osteopathic medical students who are committed to the mission of providing quality care to communities of the Pacific Northwest, particularly rural and underserved populations.  The recipients are selected from a pool of applicants using criteria which includes excellent academic standing, leadership and other noteworthy accomplishments such as awards, honors and extracurricular activities.

Congratulations to the following scholarship recipients:

- Paula Archer                        - Aileen Larson
- Margaux Chan                     - Kathryn Mettler
- Steven Engebretsen           - Jared Wenn

A special thank you to the multitude of donors who make these scholarships possible. The funds were raised in the early fall at the A.T. Still Osteopathic Golf Classic and donations to PNWU #GivingTuesday appeal in November 2015.  100% of the funds raised at the golf tournament go directly to student scholarships.  Mark your calendar, next year’s Golf Classic is scheduled for Friday, September 8, 2017. 

Rowland M Seal and Elsie Seal Endowed Scholarship

The Rowland and Elsie Seal scholarship was set up in honor of the late Rowland and Elsie Seal, longtime Naches residents who were known for their dedication to coaching youth roller-skating.  The donation signifies the importance that the Seals placed on education and their practice of lifelong learning.  The focus of the scholarship is based on students in good standing, financial need and students who are graduates from Yakima County high schools.

Congratulations to the following 2017 scholarship recipients:

- Chris Fortier
- Asra Mazha

Thank you to the Seal Trust for this endowed scholarship which will have an impact into perpetuity toward reducing student debt and helping to serve PNWU’s mission to help those in underserved and rural populations.
